When you are done working with split windows, there are two ways you can return to a single window. Try either of these methods:
When you remove the split window, the resulting single window maintains the attributes of the window in which the insertion point is located. For instance, let's say the window above the split bar shows you your document in Normal view, and the one below the split bar shows you your document in Print Layout view. If the insertion point is below the split bar when you remove the split, the resulting single window will be in Print Layout view. However, if the insertion point had been above the split, then the resulting window would have been in Normal view.
