- How to Split the Dual Monitor Desktop in Windows 8 with Actual Multiple Monitors
Despite the fact that Windows 8 has become more user-friendly to work with dual monitors, users still do not have enough features for convenient work on a multiple monitor PC. For example, the very popular feature “Split the Desktop” is not available in Windows 8.
You can find many programs, which allow splitting the desktop. However, to split the dual monitor desktop in Windows 8, you require the Actual Multiple Monitors software.
Actual Multiple Monitors contains a feature called 'Desktop Divider'. This feature allows you to split your dual monitor desktop into several independent non-intersecting areas (as tiles). If you place a window into any tile, the window will span within tile’s borders only. It is very convenient when working with a large number of windows at the same time, and especially, when using the large desktop of the dual monitor PC.
You can create as many different Divider layouts as you need and switch between them on the fly with hotkeys when required.
To create a Divider layout, open the configuration window of Actual Multiple Monitors and follow to the Desktop Divider tab. Then check the Enable Desktop Divider box, select the desired work mode (always active, active when pressing a modification key, inactive when pressing a modification key), and click to the Add a New Item button.
Now you can set desired name for the created layout and set the desired tiles’ borders by clicking the Edit Tiles button. Do not forget to click to the Activate the Layout button.
To create a new layout, click again to the Add a New Item button and create desired tiles for this new layout.
Also, you can read about other dual monitor features provided by Actual Multiple Monitors to Windows 8 in the 'Windows 8: Better Alternative to a Native Multi-Monitor Taskbar' article.
