MS Excel 'side by side' feature
Did you know there is a feature in MS office applications (e.g. Excel, PowerPoint, Word) that enables you to view files side by side, rather than minimising and maximising when you want to access multiple files? To access this feature go to the 'View' tab > click ‘Side by Side’. Note: Make sure you turn off ‘Synchronise scrolling’, if you do not want to files to scroll at the same time.
