Have you ever been annoyed with that fact that :new opens a buffer above the current? If yes, then try :below new. You'll like it!


You can also have all splits open below the current window by putting the following in your vimrc:

set splitbelow

And the process is similar if you want vertically-split windows to open to the right:

set splitright
