Re: Slightly OT - tiling windows under windows 10, to allow drag and drop using NVDA, with the mouse cursor

Ok, while haven't tested this, something did come to mind - I use autosizer to maximise certain windows automatically, just in case, and I 'see' it does also have a 'position/size' option, so might try play around with that at some stage, but, in the meantime, made another workaround.

If remember correctly, in things like windows 7 task manager, you could easily enough tell it to tile two windows side by side, etc. to then allow you to use forms of drag and drop from window to window, using a screen reader implementation of the mouse cursor.

However, in windows 10, the new version of the task manager doesn't seem to offer that too easily, so was just wondering if anyone knows of/can think of a relatively simple way to have two windows open, and to get them to line themselves up tiled either horizontally across, or vertically up and down on the screen, to then use the key combo of shift + numpad / to lock left mouse button on selected items, and then move over to target area/element in other window, route mouse cursor to navigator object using NVDA + numpad /, and then use the same keystroke as earlier to finish off the drag and drop operation?

Stay well
