Having 2 windows open and also when clicking on mouse ?

Hi.

I need to have 2 windows open here, and also still having both opened, when I chánge between the 2 opened windows, and also as I scroll the 2 windows.
It can be made in Linux, but can it also be done in W7U ?

Are you looking for a dual-pane type of browser?
If I understand correctly, and you use Firefox, there is an extension (Big Screen) that will let you do that: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...lup=&advanced=

Many thanks for your kind reply.

Not exactly. Please see the attachment, that shows 2 opened windows, for setting services. I want to click on both windows without having to to close every time I click on the opposite window. This is boring, as the closed window needs to be opened every time I do this.

Boy! Did I ever get your question wrong!
As far as I know, there can only be one active window at a time.
Activating a window, however, shouldn't be closing the other(s).
Interestingly, I have gone through exactly what you're doing in this screen shot- a Services window & Black Viper.
When I go through this drudgery I usually split the screen vertically instead of horizontally.
That way you can see many more lines and not have to switch windows to scroll as often.
You can easily 'snap' a window to the left or right side of the screen by using the Windows' Logo Key in combination with the Left/Right Arrow keys.

You can simply click on the other window to activate it. (the Vertical split is a good idea too)

I know with 2 windows of the same type (specifically firefox), you can just move the mouse over to it and scroll without clicking.

Will that work for you?

Many thanks for your reply.

It is not a case where I want to open a browser.
I want to open a window showing Services, and a window opened to show a BlackViper window with his services settings.

It works ok now.

Look at the attachment please
