2. Desktop Divider as a Solution to Split the Dual Desktop of 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.
