Do you find yourself constantly juggling between multiple tabs while working on your Mac? It can be quite a hassle, especially when you’re trying to compare information or refer to different sources simultaneously.

Thankfully, with the Split View feature on Mac, you can easily split tabs and work more efficiently. In this tutorial, I will guide you through the steps to split tabs on your Mac.

Step 1: Activate Split View

To begin, make sure you have the applications or web browsers open that you want to split into separate tabs.

Here’s how you can activate Split View:

  • Click and hold the green fullscreen button located in the upper-left corner of the window.
  • A menu will appear with three options: Enter Full Screen, Tile Window to Left of Screen, and Tile Window to Right of Screen. Select either of the “Tile Window” options.

Step 2: Adjusting Tabs

After activating Split View, your screen will be divided into two sections. One side will contain the active tab while the other side will display your other open tabs or applications. Follow these steps to adjust the tabs:

To switch between Tabs:

  • Click on any tab to make it active in either section of Split View.
  • Drag a tab from one side to another if you want to swap their positions within Split View.

To resize Tabs:

  • Hover over the vertical line separating both sections until it turns into a two-sided arrow cursor.
  • Click and drag the line to resize the tabs according to your preference.

Step 3: Exiting Split View

Once you are done working with split tabs, you can easily exit Split View mode. Here’s how:

  • Option 1: Click on the green fullscreen button again or press Esc key on your keyboard.
  • Option 2: Move your cursor to the top of the screen, and the menu bar will appear. Click on the green button in the upper-left corner of either tab to exit Split View.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to split tabs on your Mac using Split View. This feature is a great productivity tool that helps you multitask efficiently and stay organized.

Note: The Split View feature is available on macOS El Capitan (10.11) and later versions. Make sure your Mac is updated to access this functionality.

I hope this tutorial has been helpful to you. Happy multitasking!
