    I want windows to NOT minimimize
    I want to know how to keep applications and safari "up" at the same time. Each time I open one application, the other one minimizes. I don't want this. I have a very large screen and there are times I want to see things side by side (e.g., I may be reading a "how to" online and wanting to try it in Photoshop, but I can't do that)

    That shouldn't be happening. Are you using an enhancement such as "Mission Control" or a third party application that has modified OS X? Also you need to tell us about your Mac and which version of OS X you're using.

    You can also check out Window Magnet to auto snap windows into half screen, quarter screen or full screen.
    Great little tool for only $0.99. There are probably more, that just happens to be the one I started using.

    (Could be, but sort of doubt they are minimizing - only being hidden behind the new window - depending on which apps you're talking about.)
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Thanks for the link. I had never heard of it but just installed it and think it will work nice on the small 13" screen.

    For others that are to anal to spend $0.99c then there is another great tool that does a lot more than window snapping and thats Download BetterTouchTool for Mac - Customize Trackpad gestures on your MacBook.
