Split View feature on Mac: How to use, how it works and more – Times of India

Using two apps at the same time on a laptop can be a bit challenging. macOS has a feature that makes it easier to do so. Called Split View, it works rather smoothly and allows users to have two apps run side by side. Here’s everything one needs to know about the Split View feature:
How does Split View work?
As the name suggests, a user can use two apps side by side. One can choose a window to work in by clicking anywhere in that window. If one wants to see the menu bar, then simply move the pointer of the top of the screen. Users have the option to swap window positions by dragging a window to the other side. One can switch to other apps or desktop with Mission Control, or use a Multi-Touch gesture such as swiping left or right with four fingers on the trackpad.


How to enable Split View on macOS Catalina or later version

Here are the steps one needs to follow to enable Split View on macOS Catalina or macOS Ventura:

  1. Hold the pointer over the full-screen button on the upper-left corner of a window. Or click and hold the button.
  2. Choose ”Tile Window to Left of Screen” or ”Tile Window to Right of Screen” from the menu. The window then fills that side of the screen.
  3. Then click a window on the other side of the screen to begin using both windows side by side.


How to enable Split View on macOS Mojave, High Sierra, Sierra, or El Capitan

  1. Click and hold the full-screen button in the upper-left corner of a window.
  2. As one holds the button, the window shrinks and it can be dragged to the left or right side of the screen.
  3. Release the button, then click a window on the other side of the screen to begin using both windows side by side.
