How to Split Screen in Windows 11

To increase your efficiency, you can divide your Windows 11 screen into numerous areas. Split-screen allows you to see and interact with multiple windows at the same time. Windows 11 allows you to have up to four or six windows open at the same time. In Windows 11, the Snap function is activated by default.

In Windows 11 PC and Laptop, there are two ways to split the screen

To enable split screen in Windows 11, hit the WINDOWS + I keyboard shortcut to access the Settings menu, then pick System.

Check that the Snap windows option is turned on, then press the down arrow key.

You can also look through the many options provided under it and check or uncheck them as needed.

Snap Layouts in Windows 11

With Snap Layouts embedded right into the maximize button for each window, Windows 11 allows you to split the screen easily and quickly. There’s no need to drag a window to the side or use keyboard commands to activate Snap windows.
In Windows 11, hover the cursor (mouse) over the maximize button near the top right corner of the screen to use Snap Layouts. A little window will appear with four or six possibilities for splitting the screen.

Divide the screen into two sections

Hover the mouse (cursor) over the maximize button on the programmed windows you want to split, and then select one of the portions of the first selection. Other open apps will appear as thumbnails in the other half of the screen, and the current app window will snap into the selected half of the screen. Select the one you want to place on the other half of the screen.

  • Two programme windows are now visible on the screen. You can access and work on them at the same time.
  • You have the option of resizing the windows as well.

Divide the screen into three parts

If you wish to work on three apps at the same time, you can split the screen into three halves. Select the three pieces by hovering the cursor over the maximize button.

The current window will fit the part we selected earlier, and the other open windows will appear as thumbnails in the left half of your screen. Select the second and third windows you need to work on.

We now have three open windows on the screen, which you can split according to your preferences. The resizing approach stays the same: simply hold and drag the line that divides two/three windows.

Divide the screen into four parts

The idea of dividing the Windows screen into four sections is similar to what we discussed in the previous section. Hover the mouse over the current window’s maximize button, select the desired quarter from the last choice, and then select the other apps to be split-screen correspondingly.

With the default settings, once one of the open windows occupies half of the Windows screen, the other open windows will be displayed in the remaining half. Select the one that needs to be added to the opposite side of the screen.

Once you have two windows on the screen, you can resize them by dragging the line that separates them in either way. In all techniques, the process of adjusting the windows is the same.
