How to merge a lot of Word documents into one big document?

Let’s say that you have a lot of chapters of a book in separate documents and you want to move them into a whole document to make it easier to read or send. Or maybe you want to merge a lot of different documents in a big file because all are on the same subject.

Step 1: Open the first document that you want to add to and scroll to its end. Make sure that the cursor is at the end of the document too.
