How to Split Screens in Windows

Depending on the size of the screen of our Computer, it is likely that on more than one occasion we have seen with the need to divide the screen size of our Computer, in order to be able to use two applications together, an ideal option for when we are doing a job or looking for information on the internet.

With the arrival of Windows 10, Microsoft added a new option to be able to open two applications in equal parts on the screen of our Computer. Until now, we could do it using a key combination, a method that is still available in Windows 7. But there is another much more comfortable, fast, and intuitive way.

Split Windows screen with 2 apps

Keyboard shortcuts are great once you get used to them; they allow you to do any task without having to without losing concentration by being forced to release your hands from the keyboard. However, the method to be able to divide the screen showing two applications is not very intuitive to say, so this time we will use the mouse.

  • We must first open both applications that we want to show on the screen of our Computer.
  • Next, we must click on the top bar of the application and drag it to the side of the screen where we want it to be located (left or right).
  • Before releasing, we will see that a kind of guide is shown showing the space that the application will occupy. At that moment, we release the mouse button.
  • Now we have to perform the same process with the other application, but moving it to the opposite part of the application that we have already placed on one of the sides.

If you want to use a keyboard shortcut To show two applications on the screen instead of dragging the mouse, we must select the first application and press the Windows key and without releasing the arrow key to where you want it to be displayed with both applications.
