Use Split View With Two Safari Windows

While many Mac users know about using Split View for sharing the screen with two apps, you can also use it to split the screen between two windows of the same app. You can put two safari windows on either side of your screen and still have access to tabs and the toolbar of each.

    Thanks for this Split View instructional video. It’s one feature that I’ll be now using more often. However you didn’t mention how to escape from the screen because the red, yellow and green buttons have disappeared. Thank goodness I discovered that by moving the cursor to the top of the screen they did reappear.

    I can’t make split view work in ANY scenario; two Safari windows or any unrelated two apps. Pressing, holding, cursing, head scratching; nothing.
    Hovering changes the green dot to an ‘expand’ icon and produces full-screen; option-hover changes it to a ‘plus’ producing a full desktop but nothing I do allows for a split screen. Curious. 15″ MBP Late 2016, IOS 10.12.2.

    John: Not sure. Hard to say without seeing exactly what you are doing and how it is different.

    Found it on Apple’s support site: If holding down the full-screen button doesn’t enter Split View, go to Apple menu > System Preferences, click Mission Control, and make sure that “Displays have separate Spaces” is selected.
