Splitting a Screen in Word


Splitting a Screen in Word

Splitting a window means to divide it into north and south halves, where you have two horizontal windows. In a split screen, two sets of scroll bars appear so that you can travel in one half of the screen without disturbing the other half. Word offers two ways to split the screen.
  • Move the mouse cursor to the split box at the top of the scroll bar on the right. Move it just above the arrow. When the cursor turns into double-arrows, click and drag the gray line down the screen. When you release the mouse button, you have a split screen.
  • Choose Window, Split. A gray line appears on-screen. Roll the mouse down until the gray line is where you want the split to be, and click. You get two screens split down the middle.
When you tire of this arrangement and want to remove the split, choose Window, Remove Split, drag the gray line to the top or bottom of the screen, or double-click on the line that splits the screen in two.
