Here is what I would like to do:
I would like to have a PDF open but for it to be only occupying the upper half of the screen. Then in the lower
part of the screen I would like to have Word open. In this way, I could read the PDF, and make my notes
while typing in Word, below.
But this does not seem to work. I can split the screen, with the PDF and the Word document there - but
the moment I start to type in the Word document, the PDF minimizes.
I think it is not possible, but it would be really useful, to be able to work like this, so if anyone knows
if it can be done, I would be very glad to hear about it.
Of course it is... Just resize the windows to occupy half of the screen, and you could work like you described.
Another option is to right-click the taskbar and click "Tile Windows Horizontally".
