The Satellite Window
The Satellite Window is the pop up window that sWord uses (for example when you choose File > Open from the Menu Bar).
sWord only uses one pop up window, so that means that once the window is open, sWord reuses it so that your browser doesn’t have to work hard opening tons of popup windows.

In order to properly use the Satellite Window, you should simply use the custom buttons instead of the browser buttons.
While no one can prohibit you from using the browser’s back feature, it is always best to use sWord's back button.
Because, as you may notice, sWord will sometimes deactivate this button. This is the system’s way of telling you that going back is not advisable. If you don’t follow sWord’s suggestions, you may encounter errors.
This will open the contextualized help.
While no one can prohibit you from using the browser’s close window button, it's a good idea to get into the habit of using sWord's close button.
Most browser's take a little time to open up a new window. In order to save your processor a little work (and allow you to work a little faster), sWord actually reuses the same pop up window over and over again. This is called parking. When the window is parked, you won't see it - just as if it were closed - but the next time you call the Satellite Window you'll notice it pops up faster than the first time you called it. That's because it was parked, so your browser doesn’t have to open a new window, but simply show an existing one.
The only way to park the Satellite window is by using sWord's close button.
Note: If you use the browser’s close button, the Satellite Window will not be parked - it will be literally closed. And the next time you call the Satellite window your browser will have to create a new pop up again.
