The constant to-ing and fro-ing between open windows can slow down your productivity. Apple’s answer – Split View – is a clever take on a popular Windows feature.
It lets you view two apps side-by-side without the hassle of dragging, resizing and positioning windows.
You can use Split View with most programs, but it’s especially handy with Finder windows.
How to do Split View on a Mac
To try Split View, click-and-hold the green circular full screen button found on the upper-left of any Finder or application window. The window will shrink, and you can move it to the left or right of the screen. Click another app window for it to fill the remaining half of the screen.
To work in Split View, you can click anywhere in a window to work in that window, and you can click-and-drag the vertical line between the windows to adjust how much space you give to each window.
To exit Split View, move the cursor to the top of the screen and click the green full screen button again.
