Hmm, It still works for me. What happens when you click Arrange all and select how to arrange the windows? Also, does it work if you manually adjust screen sizes and fit them on the screen?

I might have asked the wrong question, here is what my user says.

The problem is not windows but worksheets. Can you have more than one worksheet in a window?
Tj aCommented:
Yes. Do as follows:
1. Open both files
2. In either file, click on the view tab
3. In the windows group, click "View Side by Side".

You can also activate synchronous scrolling in the window group
Hope this helps. Are you trying to view worksheets from the same workbook or worksheets from different workbooks?

Thank you for all your help so far, here is what the user said.

I want  to view and work on more than one worksheet from the same workbook.
Tj aCommented:
Then the method I posted before this should work....
..but If that doesn't work, do this:
1. open the workbook
2. click a worksheet you want to view and go to the View tab
3. In the Window group, click New Window
4. Repeat the above processes for each sheet you are trying to view
 After that you can use the "Arrange" function you mentioned earlier to try to pull these worksheets into one window.

To add to the previous comment, if you have more than one file open but want only the windows of a single workbook, check the box for "Windows of Active workbook".
