In this ever-evolving business world, it’s all about multi-tasking. In fact, more and more I’m seeing companies give their workers two monitors so they can see everything in front of them at once.
However, if you can master the art of working with multiple open documents, you’ll probably find that one monitor is all you need to quickly access all of your information.
Microsoft Word has a few great commands located under the Window menu in the Menu bar to help you in your multi-tasking needs.
The Arrange All command takes all open Word documents and quickly resizes each one to an equal size and tiles them side-by-side on your screen. The more Word documents you have open, the smaller each tiled window will appear.
The New Window command opens a second occurrence of the current document in a new window. This allows you to quickly view a copy of the current open document.
To quickly switch between open Word windows, simply choose the document you want to view from the bottom of the Window menu.
