    Default two equally sized windows via quick key or shortcut ?

    I want students to be able to view a tutorial from a website while being able to use excel 2007 at the same time. I know we can drag and move windows so that they both take up half a screen each but is there a shortcut or quick key press that allows two open windows to be immediately sized to take up half a screen each. (Hard to explain I know, can you imagine trying to search for that in Google..)

    Newteach..

    Hi newteach. Don't use excel, but in Word 2007 I simply click on the View tab and then on Side by Side. The two required documents need to be opened first. Excel may have something similar. Good luck.

    With just the web browser and Excel open, hold down the Ctrl key, click on the non-focused program's icon in the Taskbar to select then right-click on the Taskbar and choose "Tile Windows Vertically".

    This works for any open programs.

    Windows 7 comes with that awesome feature

    You can get it in XP/Vista

    I use winsplit revolution. It helps you make the best use of large widescreen monitors. It gives more options than aero snap:
    You press ctrl+alt and a number on the numpad, which maximises the window to that portion of the screen. Pressing the same combination again gives an alternative sizing (1/3 vs 1/2)
