On occasions, you may have the necessity of creating drawings and work on the project editor using a single monitor. Placing each application side-by-side is usually the best way to accomplish this, however, trying to adjust each Window is time consuming and usually not very accurate. Windows Operating Systems have a two main ways of split the screen in half and place each app side-by-side on the desktop.

Drag and drop

You can simply drag a window to the far left or far right of the screen and Windows will automatically resize that window to fill half the screen.

In Windows 10 , there is a new Snap Assist feature that will also show you the other apps as thumbnails and let you pick and choose which other apps to expand on the other half of the screen.


Using a Keyboard Shortcut

Pressing the Windows Key and the Arrow Keys on your keyboard, simultaneously, will do the trick. First click on the App that you want to move. The shortcuts are:

Windows Key + Left Arrow makes a window fill up the left half of the screen.

Windows Key + Right Arrow makes a window fill up the right half of the screen.
