Does this link help:
https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/83446/gimp-how-to-combine-two-images-side-by-side
?

Also note that both vista and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7 were
end-of-lifed.

The easiest way is to install Hugin where you can use the panorama creation utility to detect the common points and stitch automatically.  Note that stitching two scans is somewhat different from rotating a camera for panoramic shots, so best to read the tutorial.  http://hugin.sourceforge.net/tutorials/scans/en.shtml

The Hugin suggestion is a bit of overkill. All sorts of ways with Gimp and the
resize canvas is one way.

Even easier:

Open the two images as layers - It is better if the largest is opened first but
not necessary.

Click and drag either one of the layers into position. Outside the canvas it
shows as an outline, do not be fooled by that, it is ok.

Use Image menu -> Fit canvas to layers

thank you all for rapid replies.
i knew the process had to be simple, but i simply could not find anything in the
index referring to combining or merging images.  this worked perfectly --
especially the tip about 'fit canvas to layers'.
thx again everyone!
