Work with two windows side-by-side (Beginner level)

As an educator you may at times wish that you could work with two documents side-by-side. For instance, if you want to compare two student assignments side-by-side you can use this feature in Microsoft Word. If, during your preparation of a worksheet, you wish to see a website side-by-side with your worksheet document, which you are preparing using Microsoft Word, or you wish to see data in Microsoft Excel side-by-side with a report that you are writing in Microsoft Excel, you can use the Windows Snap feature to do this.

By the end of this task you could achieve the following outcomes:

- View two Microsoft Word documents side-side-side
- View two screens from different applications side-by-side
