To be frank, arranging and organizing multiple windows side by side on windows is not a simple task. You can try your best at arranging multiple windows, but there will always be some space left on the desktop.
For those who want to waste space on their desktop and achieve maximum multitasking, you can make use on an free tool for windows known as Aquasnap.
