When you are comparing two Word documents, having them next to each other is often helpful. You could adjust the two documents so that they appear next to each other, but there is a much faster method. Word 2007 has this functionality built into it with the click of a button.

  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.
