Computer Tricks #1

                         RUN TWO WINDOWS 8 APPS SIDE BY SIDE

Windows application are normally full screen, whether its appropriate for this apps to take up the entire screen or not.
Though you can not run the app in the windowed mode,  like you are use to with windows 7 and earlier ,
its still possible to run two apps side by side.

STEP 1 : Move the mouse pointer towards the top of the app until you see it turns into a hand.

STEP 2 : Click and hold the mouse button at the top, than move the app to the left or the right side of the                     screen.

STEP 3 : The app now takes up a sliver of the left or right side of the screen.

STEP 4 : Press the windows key again and choose another app , and the second app take up the rest of the                screen.

STEP 5 : You can switch sides for the sliver app and change places with the primary app but you are struct                  with two width, most of the screen and and sliver of the screen.

NOTE :-  This side by side feature also interacts with the windows desktop. if you are running apps that resides on  the desktop such as an  MS office than putting a window app side by side with the desktop will show all your open desktop apps, stacked along the right side.
