Windows.Arrange ppArrangeTiled
sngHeight = Windows(1).Height                     ' available height
sngWidth = Windows(1).Width + Windows(2).Width    ' available width
With Windows(1)
    .Width = sngWidth
    .Height = sngHeight / 2
    .Left = 0
End With
With Windows(2)
    .Width = sngWidth
    .Height = sngHeight / 2
    .Top = sngHeight / 2
