Using “Split Pane” option in MS Word


This great feature can simplify the editing of long documents on a single monitor.

  1. With your document open, click on “View” to show this ribbon and then click on the button on the right called “Split”:-

  2. Word places a line across the top and bottom of your screen. It also adds separate scroll bars – 1 for the top pane and another for the bottom pane, as you can see here:-

  3. You can now use the scroll bars to move up or down  either pane.

    Alternatively (provided you have the selection point in one of them), you can use the Up/Down or PageUp/Page Down keys on your keyboard to move up or down the pages.

  4. If you want to go back to a single pane for the document, simply click on “Remove Split” on the right of the “View” ribbon
