Sometimes, when the user wants to multitask, he can do so with the help of a new feature introduced in Windows 10 – Screen splitting. The user can split the screen into two, three, and even in four windows, and can perform multiple tasks more easily.
Splitting Screen into two Windows
To split the screen into two windows, all the user needs to do is click on the title bar of a specific window and drag it from its previous place to one side of the screen. After bringing it to one side, the user will see an outline appearing in the middle of the screen, which will split the two windows. The user would place the window on one side of that outline, by releasing it into its place. Then on the other side of the screen, several windows will appear, from which the user will select one window of his choice by its title bar and drag to the remaining side to fill the rest of the screen.
Splitting Screen into three Windows
First of all, the user would similarly drag a window of his choice by its title bar, but instead of placing it on one side, he would place it into one corner of the screen. Then he would select a second window and place it into the corner beneath the first one. On the remaining side of the screen a few windows will appear, one of which the user will select to fill the entire third of the screen.
Splitting Screen into four Windows
The process of splitting the screen into four windows is similar to the one used in three windows screen splitting. First of all, the user would select a window and drag it to one corner of the screen and release it into its place then he would select another window and drag it to the corner existing beneath the first one. Next, he would see several windows on the other side of the screen, from which he will choose one. Instead of making the window take the entire half of the other side of the screen, the user would bring it to a corner to make room for the fourth window. At last, the user would select the fourth window and bring it to the last remaining corner.
This is how the screen is split into two, three, and four windows in Windows 10.
