Windows 10 includes several ways to automatically arrange open windows, but they are a bit hidden and even with just one click on the taskbar, if we don't know, we could end up ignoring them forever too.

You can do the same by clicking on an empty space on the taskbar with the right mouse button and using the option Put the windows next to each other.

In this article we discover another really useful, easy to use and that makes the desktop very comfortable: the possibility of cascading windows, so that you can keep open up to ten or more scattered on the desktop, seeing their title so that you can visualize them. all together and selecting them quickly.

In Windows 10 you can right click on the taskbar and select the option "Overlap the windows"to stack them.

Each window's title bar will be prominently displayed, making it easy to do click one of them with the mouse cursor and bring the window to the foreground.You can also click the relative icon on the taskbar to bring them to the foreground.

Once the waterfall has been created, it can be canceled by pressing the right mouse button again on the taskbar and selecting the option "Undo overlap all windows"From the menu. This will return the arrangement of the windows exactly as it was before. However, if you move only one of the overlapping windows, you cannot undo the cascade arrangement.

This type of view is very similar to the one obtained, until recently, by pressing the Windows-Tab keys at the same time (today in Windows 10 the activities view opens).
