Working with Several Open Windows
You can open several things and easily switch between them by clicking on the icons that show they are open.
No matter what kind of computer you have or what operating system you use there is some way to do this. It looks different on each one.
On a Mac each of your programs shows up on the dock.
PC's do the same thing differently. On the bottom bar anything that is open shows up. If you have several windows open you can switch between them using the buttons on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. The button that is dark is the one that you are currently using. To switch click on the one that you want to work on.
You can also resize windows so that you can see more than one window at a time. Some programs have a choice to "arrange all" and will automatically arrange all of the windows you have open in that particular program.
Every window has a way that you can manually resize it by rolling over an edge or corner and dragging it in to make the window the size you want it to be.
