Since Windows 7, Microsoft introduced a split-screen feature and you could have done it by pressing Windows + Arrow keys to make the application divide in half screen. This feature is very useful while taking notes as in half of the screen you can open a browser and within the other half you can open a notepad or Word doc and start typing. The snap window feature in Windows 11 has seen an overhaul and we can say that it is the best when compared to all the past versions. The shortcut still works in the same manner, but now there is much more to just splitting the screen into two halves. Here is how to use the feature in Windows 11 properly.

How to use snap window
Once the option is switched on now you can split the applications into 6 different layouts
- Two, 50/50 split
- Two, 70/30 split
- Three windows into thirds
- Three, 50/25/25 split
- Four windows into quarters
- Three, 25/50/25 split
To use it, hover over the window’s maximise button on any application to find out split-screen options (There might be only 4 options depending on the version of Windows and screen size) or simply press Win+Z to pop open the option.
