Wish there was an easy way to see two different sections of a word document to help you copy a paragraph and paste it in a different location in the file, without the need to scroll? How about to simply compare two different sections of the document, such as the introduction and conclusion? Try Microsoft Word's split view feature to "split" your document into two different screens. 

To enable this feature, open the document you would like to work on, go to the View menu and click Split. This Split View feature gives you two views of the same document that you can scroll through independently. It's still one document so any edits your make will appear in both views. 

To undo Split View, just go to the View menu and then Remove Split
