Select buffer bufname in another window. This runs switch-to-buffer-other-window.

C-x 4 C-o bufname <RET>

Display buffer bufname in another window, but don't select that buffer or that window. This runs display-buffer.

C-x 4 f filename <RET>

Visit file filename and select its buffer in another window. This runs find-file-other-window. See section Visiting Files.

C-x 4 d directory <RET>

Select a Dired buffer for directory directory in another window. This runs dired-other-window. See section Dired, the Directory Editor.

C-x 4 m
