I have two monitors on my desktop PC, at 1920x1080 and 1920x1200 of resolution respectively. Windows 7 is configured for multi-monitor desktop.

I am currently translating a text I wrote some months ago, replacing paragraphs as I write them in English. I would like to ease my work by displaying on the left monitor the page I'm editing and on the right monitor the page next to it, so I can avoid scrolling up and down when I'm reaching page end.

Do you think it's possible or do I really have to open two Word windows and scroll them independently?

Thank you

After googling and experimenting, here is how:

  1. Open the document in Word on the first monitor
  2. From View menu, click New Window. A new window appears
  3. From one of the windows, click Place side by side
  4. Drag the other window to the other monitor, maximize both
  5. Scroll each window down to the point you want to work
  6. Click Synchronous scrolling

Word Two Windows

My hunch is that it's not possible as both pages are part of the same document. My guess is that you'll have to use two documents.
