Switching from one Window to another while working


My computer using Windows 10 has suddenly developed an issue. Whereas before, I could easily switch from the internet to an MS Office window by clicking the mouse from one to the other, now it forces me to expand or minimize to go back and forth, which is more of a pain to have to do. How do I get it to go back to the previous easy method?

window sizing

between the minimize button and the close program/window button in the top right hand corner, there's a + sign for sizing or maximizing a window. I suspect at some point you had both programs, using that choice button set on sized windows instead of maximized windows.

That Didn't Work

No, that wasn't the issue, or at least, clicking on that didn't help me.

I can't be sure but this sounds like Tablet Mode.

Take W10 out of tablet mode if it is.
