There should be an image here!In a previous tip, I showed you how to compare documents side by side in Word 2007. However, not everyone likes viewing the documents vertically because it can be difficult to see any comment balloons. In such cases, you can compare two documents in horizontal windows. To do so, follow these simple steps:

  1. Open the two documents that you want to compare.
  2. Select the view tab.
  3. In the Window group, select the View Side by Side tool.
  4. In the Window group, click Arrange All. Word re-arranges the two documents so they are displayed as two horizontal windows.
  5. Finally, in the Window group, click Synchronous Scrolling.
