Working on a Dell laptop can be a little difficult because you have to change tabs and windows all the time. This doubles when you have to do extensive research for a school project or your job. However, you can split the screen of your laptop so that you can do more work faster. Read on, and we’ll show you a few different ways you can use it to split your laptop screen.
Dell Longitude 13-7350 Series Split Screen.
Latitude 13-7350 Laptop has the built-in split-screen feature. The feature is great for multitasking and is very easy to set up. It works on all versions of Windows. Here’s what you need to do:
Open the two applications you want to see on the screen.
Press the pointer on the other app and the screen will break.
Release the button to launch the app.
Screen split with Windows Snap Assist
You can split the screen on any version of Windows, including 7, 8 and 10. Snap Assist works on all laptops and desktops. It’s a little different from version to version, so we’ll give you step-by-step instructions for each version of Windows. Read on if you are running one of the mentioned operating systems on your Dell laptop.
Windows 7 was the first version to feature Snap Assist. This allows you to drag the window to the corner of your screen and it will come to the “snap” position, leaving the rest of the screen free for another window. You can disable the feature in Settings at any time. Here’s how Snap Assist One 7 works:
Open two applications or Windows at the same time.
Place the pointer on the top bar of one of the windows and press the left mouse button.
Drag the window to the right or left of the screen.
Keep dragging it until the window is in position, leaving half the screen blank for the other window.
Drag the other window in the opposite direction.
You can use the arrow keys on your keyboard instead of your mouse.
Windows 8 and 8.1.
For Windows 8 and 8.1, Microsoft’s view was that most users would run the system on touch screen devices. If you have a touch screen laptop or tablet running Windows 8 or 8.1, you can get two windows split screen mode in seconds. Just separate the two windows and they will automatically pull together.
However, if you do not have a touch screen device, here’s what to do:
Open two applications or Windows. Must be in full screen mode.
Place the pointer in the upper left corner of the first app. Press the left mouse button and drag the window to the right.
Keep dragging it until the screen splits vertically. The second window will appear automatically.
You can move the partition line left and right to customize the size of each window.
If you have a powerful video card in your computer, you can open three windows at the same time.
As expected, the Snap Assist feature in Windows 10 has the most options. You can configure it like the previous version of Windows, but there are some additional options. Here’s how the feature works in Windows 10:
Open multiple windows or applications.
Place the cursor on the top bar of one of the windows and drag it until it “snaps” into place.
The first window or application will occupy half the screen. Click on another window and drag it to the center of the opposite direction.
With your screen split in two, drag the other windows to each corner of the screen.
Try dragging and dropping windows to different corners of the screen to see how they are arranged automatically.
Drag any window to the top of the screen to maximize it. Drag it to the center of the screen and it will return to its original size.
When Windows is in position, you can move them by holding down the Windows + Left + Right arrow keys.
The Snap feature makes life easier
.Working with multiple tabs can really complicate your creative process. The Local Distribution Screen feature available from Windows 7 allows you to split the screen and open multiple applications or Windows. This feature is complete with Windows 10 and allows you to open up to six windows at a time.
