Working in Two Windows or Tabs

Working with Two Windows or Tabs for Ease of Editing

Quite often you'll want to work with two windows or two tabs open at the same time so that you can edit and save your content in one window and preview the changes in another.

Likewise, you may want to work on two areas of your site at the same time. For example, you might want to upload an image to your File Upload page while working on your Home page. These instructions may vary slightly depending on the browser you are using.
