You want to use the screen space on your Mac to its fullest potential?
Split View lets you view 2 apps’ full screen side-by-side. Here’s how in Mac OS Monterey. We’ll show you how to enter, Split, view, and then how use and exit it. Let’s take a look at two ways to enter Split view. One way to enter Split View is to hold the pointer over the green full-screen button in the upper left corner of an app window.
You’ll see options to enter the full screen and tile the window to the left or right. You may see additional options if you have an external display or a device connected to your Mac. Select which side of the screen you want the window on. The other half of your screen will then display other open app Windows that support split view. Now select the app window you want to use side-by-side. We’ll go with photos. There we go if you’re in an app full screen, you can also enter split view by swiping up with four fingers on your trackpad to view Mission Control, then drag another app onto the thumbnail of the full-screen app. To use the space and split view, click it. Now that you know how to enter Split view, let’s take a look at how to use and exit it to move an app to the other side of the screen.
Move your pointer to the top edge of the screen and drag the toolbar. If you want one app to take up more of the space, you can drag the vertical line between the windows. Now you can work in both apps and drag items between them. Let’s move this photo over. Perfect if you want to use a different A in split view. Hold the pointer over the green full-screen button in the upper left corner of the app you want to switch and select replace the tiled window. Your screen will display other open app windows that support split view. Let’s choose notes. That was easy. You can swipe with three fingers to the left or right on your trackpad to view another app or the desktop while in Split view. If you’ve changed your accessibility settings to enable drag lock, you’ll do this with four fingers instead of 3/2 exit, split view. Swipe up with four fingers to open Mission Control. Then you can hold the pointer over a space until the Gray expand arrow appears and click it to close it.
