Nowadays,⁣ it is increasingly common to ‍work on⁣ multiple projects ⁤simultaneously. For example, you may want to manage two programs simultaneously on your MacBook. This is possible ⁤with ⁢split-screen, ⁤a MacOS tool that allows users ‍to open ​multiple applications side-by-side.

Here’s how to go about with the procedure:

1. Open two apps: The very first step is to open two applications that you want to manage in the split-screen mode. To do this, open‍ the Applications ⁢folder, ⁤located in ⁢the Finder. Select the two apps you wish to manage and make​ sure ⁢they’re both up and running.

2. ​Set‌ the two applications side-by-side: To ⁤set the two apps side-by-side, you can either select the⁤ green button in the top left corner of the window or press and hold ‘Option + ⁤Command + F’. This will automatically put the two apps side-by-side, arranged either horizontally or⁢ vertically.

3. Adjust‌ the Split Screen: You can ⁤adjust the size of the two apps by dragging the bar between them to the left and ⁤right. Additionally, you can also choose⁢ to have the‍ two apps arranged​ horizontally or vertically. To do this, ⁤move the cursor ​around the bar between the two applications ‌and‍ select the preferred option.

4. Make One App Full Screen: You can⁢ make one of the two applications take up⁢ the entire screen. To do⁤ this, simply click and drag the bar between‌ the two apps to the edge of the screen. This will cause one application to be full screen, and‌ the other to be minimized.

Split ⁤Screen is a great feature of MacOS, and it can be very useful in helping you manage multiple programs⁢ simultaneously. With a few simple ​steps, you can easily manage two applications side-by-side, resize ⁤them to your liking, and even make one of them fullscreen. Give it⁤ a try and see how it⁢ can help you!
