Word - Simultaneous display of two parts of a document

March 2017

It can sometimes be convenient to keep part of a document (title of a table, for example) permanently displayed, while being able to scroll through the rest of it. You can cut (seperate) your Word window into two independent parts, while working on a single document. Procedure:
  • Put your cursor at the top of the vertical scroll bar to the right until it turns into a double arrow (pointer resizing).
  • Click and hold and then pull the dash down to the desired location. When you release the mouse button, the window splits into two and a second slider appears to the right (to be able to scroll vertically in the second part).

Note that:
  • If the vertical scroll bar is not displayed, click on the File menu and select Options. On the Advanced tab, View, check "Show vertical scroll bar".
