Solved!

splitting screens in 8.1

HP Recommended

Does anyone know how to have your email account in split screen with  Office? For example, if I have a document in Word I want to send as an attachment, is there a way to have Word in split screen with my email?

Hey mckinn6454,

Depending on the resolution of the screen you are using, it may work a little differently. In any case, here's a video from Microsoft showing how to do it:

I appreciate guiding me to the video on how to split the screens. I guess I am doing something wrong because it is not working for me. I have a ton of icons on my start screen that are grouped and named which might make a difference. Anyway, I will keep trying.

You're welcome!

 

Note that the video I posted a link to shows you how to do it with Win8 modern apps - the full screen ones, not desktop apps. To do it with Desktop apps (like Office, Firefox, etc...) try this:

 

  1. Grab the title bar of a window (top-most bar with the name of the program in it) by clicking on it, and holding the left mouse button while dragging - how you normally move a window.
  2. Drag the window to the left-most edge of the screen, and let go - the window should now "snap" and fill the left half of the screen.
  3. Follow steps 1 & 2 again, but this time with the right side of the screen.

 

You should now have 2 Desktop apps snapped to each side, giving you a split-screen view.

I got the split screens with Word and Gmail. At least i now know one way to do it. It still doesn't seem to like yahoo, but that is okay.

Thank you for your help
