Before, when PC display has low resolution and the view port size is small, the size of all window is maximized on the screen, and user focus one window. But now, user can arrange several windows on the display device and it can be possible to see different kind of information at the same time on higher resolution of display device. But there are not good solution to optimize the way how to arrange the windows on the destop. Current Windows provide following solutions, but they are not so useful. 1) Windows provide a way to arrange selected windows vertically or horizontally. But it does not allow the user to save or restore the previous settings. So user have to re-arrange it every time. 2) In case if an application program has child window under the control, it is possible to arrange the child windows. But it is impossible to customize the way how to arrange the windows.
