Tiled window:

Advantages include the following:

  1. The system usually allocates and positions windows for the user, eliminating the necessity to make positioning decisions.
  2. Open windows are always visible, eliminating the possibility of them being lost and forgotten.
  3. Every window is always completely visible, eliminating the possibility of information being hidden.
  4. They are perceived as less complex than overlapping windows, possibly because there are fewer management operations.
  5. They are easier, according to studies, for novice or inexperienced people to learn and use.
  6. They yield better user performance for tasks where the data requires little window manipulation to complete the task.

Disadvantages include the following:

  1. Only a limited number can be displayed in the screen area available.
  2. As windows are opened or closed, existing windows change in size. This can be annoying.
  3. As windows change in size or position, the movement can be disconcerting.
  4. As the number of displayed windows increases, each window can get very tiny.
  5. The changes in sizes and locations made by the system are difficult to predict.
  6. The configuration of windows provided by the system may not meet the user's needs.

Overlapping windows:

Advantages include the following:

  1. Visually, their look is three-dimensional, resembling the desktop that is familiar to the user.
  2. Greater control allows the user to organize the windows to meet their needs.
  3. Windows can maintain larger sizes.
  4. Windows can maintain consistent sizes.
  5. Windows can maintain consistent positions.
  6. Screen space conversation is not a problem, because windows can be placed on top of one another.
  7. There is less pressure to close or delete windows no longer needed.

Disadvantages include the following:

  1. They are operationally much more complex than tiled windows. More control functions require greater user attention and manipulation.
  2. Information in windows can be obscured behind other windows.
  3. Windows themselves can be lost behind other windows and be presumed not to exist.
  4. Overlapping windows represent a three-dimensional space is not always realized by the user.
  5. Control freedom increases the possibility for greater visual complexity and crowding. Too much windows, or improper offsetting, can be visually overwhelming.
