[Windows 8] Can I split the screen?

Last Update Date : Jan 16. 2018

* Please note, this section is designed to give you basic product troubleshooting information, also refer to your user manual for more information. 





Windows 8 provides the Snap mode that allows multi-tasking by showing two applications side by side.







Just drag one of the apps currently running to either the right or left side

of the screen. A vertical bar will appear, splitting the screen.







Using this vertical bar, you can change the screen ratio of each application.

(Screen ratio can be set to either 3:7 or 7:3. The layout will be automatically

changed based on the chosen ratio.)







You can also minimize the Desktop and open the Control Panel on the right side.
