Multitask on your Galaxy Book
If you need to view a few different things at once on your Galaxy Book, you can use Split Screen view and Virtual Desktop. Split Screen view allows you to display two apps at the same time, and you can also adjust the size of the apps to suit your needs. Virtual desktop lets you open and use multiple desktops for more streamlined multitasking.
Use Split Screen view
Multitask on your Galaxy Book with Split Screen view, so you can see and control two different apps at the same time.
To use Split Screen view, first open the two apps you want to use. Select Task View on the taskbar, and then select the first app you would like to use. Select either Snap left or Snap right to position the app. Select the second app to automatically positon it to the opposite side of the screen. You can adjust the size of the windows by selecting the divider in the center and dragging it to the left or right.
Note: The Snap option will not appear if the apps are not opened first. Some apps may not be compatible with Split Screen view.
Open multiple desktops
If you need to access several windows, you can have them open at the same time with Virtual Desktop. Alternate between different desktops on your screen, so you can view all of your apps and documents quickly.
To use Virtual Desktop, select the Task View icon in the taskbar, and then select New desktop. Currently opened apps, windows, and activity history will appear in the new desktop so you can change or remove them. Each new desktop that you create will be visible in Task View, so you’ll always know which one to select when you need it.
Hover over the thumbnails in Task View to see the apps and windows in each desktop. You can delete desktops you no longer need or add new ones. Right-click on the opened windows in each desktop to view additional options, such as snapping the window to the left or the right, or moving the window from the desktop. Use these options to customize your desktops and get the most out of each screen.
