Default have part of page with 2 columns

I am working on a paper, and I have trouble in creating part of the page with two columns, I tested every possible solution but it does not seem working.
1. I want to convert to two columns the part after introduction, so please see it. Thanks in advance from everyone.
2. Another Issue is that I want to have a table that its width is equal to width of the standard page when it is one column but when I convert the document into 2 columns format it breaks and some part of it goes to say left column and some part goes to the right column.


I appreciate every help and thanks in advance.
(For example I tried section break or make afterward this point two columns)

To use a two-column layout, you can just format the required portion with two columns. As you'll note, however, in your document that immediately pushes the two-column content to a new page. That's because you have some footnotes attached to the single-column Section. For whatever reasons, Word doesn't support having footnotes for sections with different column setups on the same page. There is a workaround for that:
1. Move the footnote references into the start of the two-column Section.
2. At the original footnote locations, insert formatted cross-references to the corresponding footnotes.
3. Format the moved footnote references as hidden text.

Depending on what you want to achieve with the table, you can either put section breaks either side of it or put it into a textbox, so it retains a full-width layout or you can uncheck the 'allow row to break across pages' option and format the paragraphs with the 'keep together' and 'keep with next' attributes (you might want to omit the 'keep with next' attributes for the last paragraph in each column).
