Folks,
I have attached a practice workbook where I am trying to create multiple windows then auto arrange them by tiling  them.
I have gone through (Excel 2013 BTW) View - New Window three times. Then I went to All Arrange - select tiled and checked Windows of Active Workbook expecting see 4 windows. What step(s) could I be missing since nothing is being tiled?

Not familiar with 2013 that much, but when i want to have two Excel workbooks open in 2010 I click on Excel & open rather than opening in first Excel

Do you mean you want to open your file on multiple windows, should be done by opening excel file > open> your file

you have to follow the steps per window

Folks,
Here are the instructions I'm to follow:

"In this workbook RegionalSales, suppose we want to see a portion of the Midwest and the South and the West sheets as well as the East sheet that's currently showing. On the View tab, if we want to see additional windows, we need to Click New Window three times. Back to the View tab, New Window, Back to the View tab, New Window. We now have four windows available, View tab, Arrange All and we do want to make sure in this case, we want to view windows of the active workbook. There are four choices here, Tiled is usually the best. Click OK.
We now have four windows. It's looking very crowded. One thing we can do to see more of each worksheet is to Double-Click any of the tabs, for example, the View tab and that collapses the view. I'll do this in the window on the right side too, Double-Click View in each case here. Lower right-hand corner, Double-Click View and lower left corner, Double-Click View. It's quite possible we're looking at the same worksheet in each window so that's not so helpful so in the upper right window, let's just Click there and view the Midwest sheet. In the lower left corner, Click there and Click the South sheet, lower right corner, Click the West sheet."

The problem I was having is when I selected View - New Window from the original file when I repeated the action I failed to return to the original file. When I did that I got the windows on the file correctly tiled.

The post was to resolve the problem of tiling the same worksheet multiple times. What I was doing is selecting New Window (2013) in the Window section and when that window appeared I repeated the process but rather than go back to my source worksheet I repeated it with the New Window, When I realized my mistake and I was able to create a new worksheet in New Window
