howto | use Split View THE QUICK WAY

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

1 Lo­cate your first app

The first step in ac­ti­vat­ing Split View is to make sure both apps you want to run are open. Lo­cate the first app you’d like to use in it, and click and hold on the green but­ton in the top-left cor­ner of its win­dow. Now drag the win­dow to the left or right side of the screen, which will be high­lighted with a blue over­lay. Release the mouse or track­pad to fill that area with the app.

2 Find a sec­ond app

With one app tak­ing up half of your screen, the other win­dows that are open be­come thumb­nails in the other half. Se­lect the app (or spe­cific win­dow) you want to see on that side of the screen by click­ing its thumb­nail. The app will zoom to fill that area. You’re now in Split View mode. It is, in ef­fect, like hav­ing both apps run­ning in full‑screen mode si­mul­ta­ne­ously.

3 Al­lo­cate space to each

Be­tween the two apps is a black line. Put the pointer over the line and it’ll change to an ar­row icon, in­di­cat­ing you can click and drag to ad­just the space al­lo­cated to the apps. To exit Split View, move the pointer to the top of the screen to re­veal the menu bar and each app’s ti­tle bar. Click ei­ther app’s green but­ton to re­move it from Split View; the other re­mains in full-screen mode.
