How to see several windows at the same time?

Jun 21, 2012 2:15 PM

I know this is too basic.

 

I have 1 window open.

The tab shows 3 separate items each of which I can click on and see.

But I don't want to see each window 1 at a time.

I want to see all 3 items at one time.

I know how to tile once I see all 3 windows.

But how do I get to see all 3 at the same time?

    Could you clarify what you mean by "see all 3 at the same time"? Also, are you referring to the Window>Arrange>Tile feature?

    Could you post a screenshot of what your workspace looks like right now?

    You lost me. You said you had three windows open if yo have multiple windows open, whether floating or as tabs, you should be able to click that icon in the menu bar, then click one of the tiling patterns (you do need to click twice, though apparently -- click to open the panel and drag down to a selection, as you might do for a menu, does not work here)

    Larry  read and follow the directions in post #2, which will give you all the options for "viewing several files at the same time".  These are the files that you currently have in tabs. I just tried this and as far as I can see Peter has it nailed in post #2, but you then have even managed to get him confused as he indicates in post #6. Good luck!

    Tabs display one doc at a time. Any viewing method the shows multiple docs uses un-tabbed windows. That button I showed you above is one easy way to change from the tabs to a convenient arrangement of windows.

     

    So if you have multiple tabs, you can use the views button to arrange them so they are all visible at the same time.

    The Arrange Windows widget in the tool bar is sometimes confusing.

     

    Selecting any open window makes that the topmost active window; if it's near maximum size, you can't see the others, so this is also confusing.

     

    How about Window > Arrange > Float All in Windows to separate multiple tabbed open files, followed by Window > Arrange > Tile (or Cascade)?
