I have one instance of GIMP open. I have opened two images. They appear as separate tabs by default:

two images open in two tabs tabs in default

Is there a way to view the open images side by side? Can I "undock" one of the open windows or manipulate the windows in way? I would like to view them side by side for dual view photo editing and comparisons.

OS: Windows 10 || GIMP: 2.10.8

A way to do this in Photoshop was discussed in this post.

Turn it off from the pulldown menus: Windows -> Single-Window Mode
