Hi,

Thank you for being a part of Windows 10.

Windows logo key +Shift+Left Arrow or Right Arrow will move de active screen automatically to the other monitor. Then, press Windows logo key + Left Arrow or Right Arrow to make the active window split in have and move it to the left or right of the screen.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other issues with Windows in future.

It's not working out with me, I'm surprised the split screen function doesn't work the same as it worked on the windows 8.1 system. Why>?????

I agree!! This among other bugs is my greatest annoyance with Windows 10! Bring back the easy split screen (side by side) ability.

I understand that you can size windows to whatever you want, but that is painstakingly annoying to size it.

How do I do this on a Surface 3 without a keyboard?   8.1 split screen was great, why change it?

it's not working for me either, the feature of split screen was really practical, I have tried the Window logo key + arrow, and not working either, I hope this feature comes back like Windows 8.1

I have a Surface Pro 3 and this does not solve the problem. I have only one monitor and want to split my screen like I could do it with Windows 8.1. Also, I had bought Office but it disappeared when upgrading. ?????

Simply click the Task View button (next to the search window, on the left end of the task bar.)   

My complaint with Windows 10 is that they removed the "Help" option from the start menu to get help with Windows 10.  We don't need 100,000 answers from the internet for a simple question (such as how to split the screen on Windows 10.)

Splitting the screen (the OP's ?) is distinct from task view so simply clicking the task view icon does not achieve the desired effect. How to specifically  split the screen to have two active apps is still an open question.

Grab the top of the window (or application) you are using.  If you drag it to the top of the screen it will snap to full screen, if you drag it to the either side of the screen it will snap to half screen and the task view will appear in the other half of the screen and will allow you to select a second window/app to use in split screen.

Also if you were to drag a window/app into a corner of the screen it will snap to quarter screen so you can now actually split the screen into quarters if you wanted to.
