Combine or merge multiple documents into one window in Word

Author: Sun Last Modified: 2018-12-13

Microsoft Word keeps each document opening in its own separate window. The more Word documents you open, the more Word windows will be displaying on your taskbar. But Kutools for Word’s Combine Windows utility can combine all open Word windows into a single Word document window, and you can easily work with multiple documents open in just a window.
