Tips and Tricks for FrontPage
What You Want to Do
Expected Audience: Intermediate
When Microsoft FrontPage® is open and you want to open an additional Web, FrontPage automatically launches a new instance of itself, allowing you to see both simultaneously. But this is not so for opening pages in the same Web. By default, FrontPage will simply open a new window within the same instance of FrontPage. You can switch back and forth between windows, but you can't view both pages at the same time. If you would like to be able to see both pages (for example, if you want to drag content from one page to the other), FrontPage allows you to do this from the window menu.
Feature to Use
Specific Steps to Take
To display multiple pages at one time, follow these steps:
- On the Window menu, click New Window.

- Notice that a new item appears on your task bar. Switch to the new window, and open the second document you want to have open.
You can now press ALT + Tab key to switch between pages. You can also select areas of documents in one window, drag them over the task bar icon for the second window, and drop them into the second document. You can right-click on the windows task bar and choose Tile to split the screen evenly amongst all non-minimized programs. You can use the second window to open a separate sub web, web server or file location and drag and drop documents between them.
