How to Switch between Documents in Word 2007

Word 2007 keeps each document you create or open in its own, separate window. To switch between them, you can use several methods, including the Switch Windows menu and the Activate dialog box.

Using the Switch Windows menu in Word 2007

The safest way to switch between document windows is to use the Switch Windows menu on the View tab. The menu lists up to nine open documents in Word. To switch to another document, choose it from the menu.
