  • Question

  • Hi,

        I don't really know much about Windows, as I'm a Mac person who uses Windows at my college. I noticed there's a way to have two windows open side-by-side, but is there a way to make it so that I can enter text into one window without first clicking to change the window that's receiving the UI events, so to speak?

    For example, I'm working on a PowerPoint presentation right now.  I have Word on one side of the screen and PowerPoint on the other.  What I'd like to do is copy text from the Word document and paste it into the PowerPoint presentation, without first clicking in PowerPoint.

  • No, you need to click on the window you want to manipulate (or alt-tab to it). You can always right click > copy from the word document, then hover over the PowerPoint, right click, and paste.
