Word 2016 - Display current open doc on right half of screen

Word 2016

I need to display a Word document on the right-hand side of the screen so that I can view my open Chrome window on the left. Normally, my Word application takes up the entire screen.

I discovered a workaround:
1. Bring up a second document.
2. View side-by-side.
3. Switch to the open Chrome window.
4. Click on the Word icon on the bottom of my screen, then select the doc that displays on the right.
 Pair of word thumbnails    

It looks great.

However, I'd love to do the above w/o resorting to a second open window.
Word and Chrome Happy Together
Can it be done?

open 2 (or more windows) chrome and word, put chrome in a normal not a full screen window, same with word, drag the chrome window to the left of the monitor it will split the screen in half, and prompt you for the window to put on the right side

Thanks. Ending my day now, will check tomorrow.

Windows Key + Right or Left Arrow key will move the current application in focus to the respective half of the screen.
So open chrome, then Windows + Left Arrow. Open Word, then Windows + Right arrow.

If you have multiple monitors Windows + Shift + Arrow will move the application to the next display.

OK, I got i the windows-key-arrow-keys thing to work, but it took a couple of tries. The first time, I saw all my open windows tiled (is that the right word?) on the right-hand side of the screen. Will need to play with it some more. Thanks.

when you get the tiles you then select the one you want on the right

Thank you Craig and David.
Please note that I did not try the multiple-monitor thing b/c I have only one monitor. :)
