Perhaps this is obvious, but you can also split the window horizontally, i.e.,
so that the two pieces appear side-by-side:
C-x 3 runs the command split-window-horizontally, which is an
interactive compiled Lisp function.
It is bound to C-x 3.
(split-window-horizontally &optional SIZE)
This may or may not be a good idea, depending on the relative width of your
monitor and the text displayed in the window.
