How do I do this?

1. I Open ( and see) the Excel file. I minimize it.
2. I then open (and see) the Word file.

What do I then do to see them both side-by-side and be able to work in either of them?

I can't seem to find anything in the W98 HELP on this. What keyword should I be using?

Thanks much. ...wdc

Open one of the files. Now put your mouse cursor on one of the lower corners of the window.
The cursor will turn into a double sded arrow. Now press and hold the left mouse button and drag the window to the left or right depending on which corner you have gold of till the window is half the size of your screen.
Now open the other documents and do the opposite bottom corner.
Now you should have both windows open side by side.
You can change between the two simply by clicking on that window.

Thanks but I still am doing something wrong.

After I resize the first file (a spreadsheet) and get it to less than half-size on one side of the screen, I minimize it and call up the second file (Word document). I resize it to less than half size and place it on the the other side of the screen. Correct?

But I do not see them both, simultaneously side-by-side. What am I missing?

Did you open them both up then?
They both have to be open at the same time.
