3. Notice the two vertical scroll bars. For example, use the lower vertical scroll bar to move to row 49. As you can see, the first 6 rows remain visible.

4. To remove the split, double click the horizontal split bar that divides the panes (or drag it up).

Note: in a similar way, you can use the split box to the right of the horizontal scroll bar to split your window into a left and right pane. You can even split your window into four panes. Any changes you make to one pane are immediately reflected in the other ones.
