Windows 10 Snap (or Snap Assist) allows you to easily arrange multiple open windows on your screen

 

To snap two window side by side

 

1)Click the title bar of an open window and drag it to the left or right side of the screen

 

2)As the mouse pointer touches the edge of the screen you will see a visual indication that it is ready to snap (as per image below)

3)Let go of the mouse button and the chosen window will snap to the edge of the screen

 

4)Snap Assist will then show all other open windows as thumbnails (as image below) and you can click on one to make it automatically snap to the edge of the screen, beside the window you snapped above
