terrypin Posted May 22, 2008 Report Share Posted May 22, 2008 Does anyone have or know of a macro(s) that could help me achieve something I do a lot, like the following example. Suppose on my taskbar I have this typical mixture: - Browser - Text editor - A 'group' representing 3 JPG photo images from say IrfanView. (I have 'Group similar taskbar buttons' checked in Properties.) - Email program I'm composing a message about the photos in my email program, which therefore currently has the focus. If I look around or use Alt-Tab I can see one of the images, which was opened recently and not mimimised. I now briefly want to see all 3 images, plus my text editor document, vertically or horizontally tiled, at a single view. There appears to be no way to do that simply within XP. I can't even reliably see the 3 IrfanView images. Although r-clicking the grouped taskbar item displays a menu including 'Tile Vertically', it doesn't do so unless you use 'Minimize Group' first. Otherwise you get a mix of the images and whatever window last had focus. (Presumably a Windows design flaw or bug?) What I'm after in this example is to identify each of those 4 windows (probably just the text window and the grouped item), click or apply a hotkey, and have all 4 immediately tiled across the full screen. Click or hotkey again, (or Alt-Tab) and I want to be back to my email program. Any thoughts or suggestions please? -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
