Cascading Windows

What is Cascading Windows?
Cascading Windows is a type of arrangement of applications that are open on a Windows desktop. In this arrangement, the windows of the currently running applications overlap and their title bars are made visible to inform the user of their open status. The cascading window arrangement can be used to manage multiple windows that are open at the same time.

Cascading windows are also known as layered windows.

If the 'Cascading Windows' option is activated, windows that are currently running are placed in a single stack that is fanned out so that the title bars are visible. This is helpful in making all open windows visible and accessible. The cascading arrangement of windows usually appears in the upper left corner of the desktop screen and displays the windows in a cascading format.

The cascading windows arrangement can be activated using the taskbar options. To activate this arrangement, the user right-clicks on the taskbar and selects the option 'Cascade windows' from the pop-up menu.

This arrangement can also be combined with the tiled arrangement by selecting the windows separately and then applying the arrangement option. The arrangements can also be applied by selecting the running applications from Task Manager and then right-clicking and selecting the cascade option from the pop-up menu.

Cascading Windows along with other window arrangement options such as tiled windows, windows side by side and show windows stacked make it easy for the user to multitask easily, such as when the user has to work with multiple windows at the same time copying and editing and formatting content from an application like Microsoft Word to another like PowerPoint.
