Help finding software

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this thread is sorta dumb but I need help.

Does anyone know of a program that can have 1 active program but there is another showing. For example: right now Ihave to type up an outline of ancient rome and a bibliography, I need to be able to have abiword up and active while still having firefox open. Is this possible?

Just tile the windows vertically or horizontally.

No, just right click on the toolbar at the bottom of Windows. Then click either Tile Windows Vertically or Horizontally. I always use it to type and research at the same time.
