Window menu

How to get there

The Window menu is one of Finale’s unchanging menus.

What it does

The Window menu controls (and indicates) which windows are open, and which are in front (active). It also has Tile and Stack commands, which automatically and neatly arrange multiple open windows into a more convenient layout.

[File windows]

The names of all file windows are listed in the order they were opened at the bottom of the Window menu. A check mark appears by the active window. Choose a window's name to make it active.

Tip: To switch the active document window, press COMMAND+‘.
