Tech Tuesday: Split Screen View In Windows 7 Is A Great Tool


Because I own a Mac and Kris and Deb both have PC’s, I have been introduced to a lot of cool things you can do with Windows, like split your monitor screen. For example, Kris and Deb teach an online Photoshop class, and it is very convenient to be able to have their video lesson open while also having Photoshop open. The steps for how you use the split screen option are:

1) Open the programs you want to have on the screen at the same time. Click the “Maximize” middle button in the upper right-hand corner of the programs to make both of the screens smaller.


2) Right-click on the taskbar and click the optionĀ Show Windows Side by Side.


Your windows will then pop up next to each other where they are supposed to be and you are done!

    Thanks! I was just fighting with my pc, trying to have 2 windows open. If I moved one a little, it would maximize & fill the screen again, blocking the 2nd window. You have just made my life so much easier!!!
