How to quickly manage split view on Mac



  A Macbook with macOS Split View on screen

It is easy to manage two Macs side by side (macOS El Capitan [10.11] or later) with a feature called Split View. With split view, you can pin exactly two windows to the halves of the screen and also adjust the ratio of the screen that each screen occupies. Here's how.

Using Split View on Mac

First open the two windows you want to use with Split View and place them wherever you want on the screen.

The first option, "Enter Full Screen", causes the window to occupy the entire screen, hiding the macOS menu bar. The other two "tile window" options click the window to the left or right half of the screen Click on one of the "Tile Window" options

With one window occupying half the screen, your Mac will show smaller versions of other open windows on the other half of the screen. Choose the window you want to fill the rest of the screen by clicking on it with your mouse. It will completely fill the other half.

Alternatives to Split View

Right now, Split View on Mac feels like an undercooked feature that Apple is likely to expand in the future. For example, macOS does not currently offer keyboard shortcuts for managing split view, but they may appear in a future release.

For now, third-party apps like Magnet offer more options for aligning windows to a grid pattern and using keyboard shortcuts, which can be very satisfying if you want more control over your Mac multitasking experience.
