  1. But how do I move from one file to other?

  2. @Sourav

    CTRL-W + w (Press CTRL and w together first)

  3. Can both file in sync when I page down or page up?

  4. for each window
    :set scrollbind

    then all scrollbound windows scroll together

  5. Thanks Chris! It works.

  6. How to exit the :set scrollbind
