Explorer New Window Position

When I open a second Explorer window, it's positioned virtually on top of the currently open window. Usually, when I do this it's so I can drag and drop objects from one to the other. The Explorer window placement means I have to move it aside in order to expose both Explorer window contents. Is there a way to have the second Explorer window not open on top of the existing open window?

I looked for a way to possibly make shortcuts that snap to the side of the monitor, but I didn't seem to find anything. But you can use the screen snap shortcut, just select one of your explorer windows and do Windows Key + Left (or right) Arrow.

Thanks, Josephur. I didn't know about that shortcut. It pretty much gives me exactly what I want.
