How to use Split View on your Mac

Did you know that two windows can be displayed next to each other on your Mac, using the Split View feature?

It is a useful feature if you need to compare information in two different windows, or just need to use two windows without having to access them from the Desktop each time.

1) Press and hold on the green Maximize button and select either Tile Window to Left of Screen or Tile Window to Right of Screen to position the window accordingly.

(If you click once on the green Maximize button this will display the app in full-screen mode, rather than holding on it to activate Split View.)







2) Click on one of the apps on the other side of the screen to add it as the other Split View panel. Click on each window to make it active.

  • Drag the middle divider bar to resize either of the Split View panels, to change the viewing area
  • Move the cursor over the top of the window of each Split View item to view its toolbar and controls

Swap the windows in Split View by dragging the top toolbar of one app into the other window.
