Do you need a different app?  The just click on the left hand side of the screen to the app that you need now and it will be predominantly placed in the center of the screen.  If you have multiple windows open on the left hand side and need a different app then just click the stack on the left hand side where the app you need is located.  Just click the left hand side again until the app you want is displayed.

How to Group Windows

To group apps together, drag on window to the center of the screen to pair it with another app.  What is great about this feature is that you can have as many groups of apps together as need.  Also there is not a limit to the number of grouping that you have open.
