The Windows 10 split screen functionality is fantastic for multitasking, particularly if you are using a large screen. You can see multiple programs side by side, or both, as you can snap to multiple app windows at once. You also get a larger Windows sidebar to work with. To use all these features and have a productive day, there are a few things that you should know. If you don’t know anything about split-screen windows, then the good news is that there are plenty of videos that show you how to use this feature to it’s full potential. In fact, the split screen functionality in Windows 10 is so great, that many developers have actually written some of the coolest apps for this new feature.
When you start up an app on one window and a related app on another window, you have to lift your finger from the main app and move it over to the app that is on the split screen. For example, if you are in Facebook and start typing into a Facebook news feed application, you have to lift your finger from the main keyboard and move it over to the split screen to continue typing. To make it easier on yourself, Microsoft has developed a few quick start apps that allow you to quickly launch different apps without lifting your finger. These quick start apps include the Windows Start Menu and the Search app.
If you want to use two different displays for multi-tasking, then you will need to enable the Use dual display option in your Windows 10 setup. This is easily accomplished by going to the Control Panel > Systems and Maintenance > Display Settings. When you click on this link, you will see an icon that says “Change Windows Displays Setting” which is in the left-hand pane of the display settings window. Select this link and choose the optional second display option from the pop-up menu.
To launch the secondary display, then you just need to click and drag it to the left or right side of your primary display. For example, if you are using the Windows Start Menu, then you would drag it to the left or right side. In the same way, if you are using the Search Companion on your desktop screen, then you would drag it to the left or right side. You can also use the secondary display for browsing through files, listening to music, viewing photos or whatever you want to do on a computer that uses a desktop PC.
Another useful feature of snap windows is the ability to open another app window in a corner of your screen. Using the Windows Task Manager, you can open another app window in the corner of any free space available on your desktop or laptop screen. This works even if there is no other open window. The corner snap option is available as well in the Task Manager if you have set up multiple start screens with the Start Screen snap feature.
When you use these windows side by side apps, they act as one big window. When you switch between them, they automatically hide all other windows. You can see a split screen image even when the main window is hidden. There are many advanced features of snap windows such as: real-time feedback (such as whether one of the windows is closed or opened), adjustable borders and translucent windows. If you like, you can open up the Developer Tools area to learn more about how to create these windows and view visual examples.
Snap works well with the new Windows 10 hardware designed by Microsoft. It provides a great way to improve productivity and efficiency while using the computer. You can also use multiple displays with snap views. These are especially useful if you have a small “pro” office like the home or work station. The ability to multi-task makes it easier to get more done in less time. Here are the four corners of snap windows that you can use with multiple displays:
Windows 10 has many new and unique features. One of the best is the split-screen mode in the Task Manager. This provides a very fast way to switch between two windows at one time without having to right-click or click several times. Using keyboard shortcuts to open multiple apps is another great feature. By typing in certain phrases, you can quickly open common programs like Skype or Internet Explorer without having to type long names and command words.
