Using Split View

Split View is an underused viewing mode where you have exactly two apps on your Mac's screen at once. It is similar to Full Screen mode and works in conjunction with Mission Control.

    Evening Gary, watching your Mac OS split view tutorial. My query is this: I have a desktop 1 open with email, desktop 2 with calendar. I opened up another desktop and used the spit view with two windowed safari sessions. If i open another desktop i dont seem to be able to run another safari window and if i click on safari from the dock, it takes me back to the split screen safari window. I thought I might be able to run a safari split screen window and another full screen safari at the same time

    You can. The problem is that if you click on Safari in the Dock, it will take you to the current Split or Full screen desktop. So you can create the windows first, then try to arrange them. Or, Control+click Safari in the Dock and select New Window. I just tried that and it worked for me.

    Brilliant Gary, will be so useful!
    Sadly though, Aperture can’t be part of Split View – I know it’s not supported any more :(
