Word 2007: Viewing Two Documents, Side by Side

Posted April 7, 2008 by Rob Rogers in Microsoft Word

When you are comparing two Word documents, having them next to each other is a necessity. You could take the time to carefully adjust the two documents so that they appear next to each other, but this takes up valuable time. Word 2007 makes it easy to place your two documents side by side on your screen without the fuss.


1. Open both of the documents in Word 2007.

2. Pick one of the open files to be the open document.

3. Go to the Ribbon and select the View tab.

4. In the Window section, select View Side by Side

Both documents will appear next to each other on your screen.
