Parallel worksheet alongside video?
HI all - is there a way of avoiding having to navigate between different windows (the video and the worksheet/space)? I find it time consuming and fiddly having to pause the video, go to a different browser, and would like to be able to view the two in parallel windows so I could work on my workspace while still following the video. Thanks for any tips.

The simple fix is to use two monitors, but I know this may not be feasible for some.
You could minimize and resize both windows so they both fit on the screen, albeit this can be annoying, but more time efficient. If you are using a Mac, the more current OS versions (OS X El Capitan or later) do offer a Split View option, which essentially makes one monitor act as though it is two.
I hope you find a workable solution for yourself.
Keep Coding! :)
Just split your screen. If you have Windows, you can use a keyboard shortcut by pressing Windows + left arrow to minimize one the video page and placing to the left hand side of the screen. Then you go to the worksheet and press Windows + right arrow to minimize it to the right hand side.
