    Welcome to the forum.

    Good question. When you have multiple apps running in Windows 8, move your mouse pointer to the left hand side of the your screen until you see the second window. When the second window appears, click and hold the apps you want in the second windowit and drag it to either left or right hand side and you are done.

    Hello mrusso4355. Welcome to Eight Forums.

    In many different ways the screen can be split.
    You could go to your desktop and put your mouse pointer to the top of the screen until you see a hand.
    Drag it to the left or right until it snaps in place.

    This is a place to start.

    How big is your screen? You need 1366x768 for Metro Snap to work. If your screen is too small Metro Snap will not work. You can still do slit screen, you just can't do it in Metro
