|A new feature to split your Edge browser screen|
|If you turn on this experimental feature in Edge you can show two webpages side by side (you can even choose what proportion of the screen each side occupies).|
I'll start by showing how you can use this new Edge feature, then explain how to enable it.
So you're working on your company website, but you want to see some interesting pictures at the same time. Previously you'd have to drag tabs into position next to each other, but now you can use the Edge split screen feature:
You can split the screen like this.
You can use the double-headed arrow shown above to change the relative size of each panel:
Less owls, more cats and cucumbers.
The menu you can display for each tab shows that this is an experimental feature:
When you can send feedback to Microsoft it's usually bad news!
The first thing to do is to check that your version will support this new feature:
Choose this option in Edge to check your current version number.
I'm on version 110.0.1587.57:
I think you will need to be on at least 105.0.1298.0 to get access to the split screen feature.
This is called the Canary version of Edge. I'm not certain exactly which version you need; the easiest thing to do is probably to try to enable this feature as shown below (if it's not there, you haven't got access to it!).
To enable split screens, type this into your Edge browser address bar:
Type in edge://flags into the address bar.
You can now enable the Edge split screen feature:
Here I've done this already. Note the warning, explaining that you might lose data or compromise your security or privacy!
You can now click on the following icon to split your screen:
Obviously you can click on the icon again to unsplit your screen.
Although you can achieve the same results by dragging tabs to the right or left of your screen to dock them into position, this doesn't work properly when you're using multiple screens. I think I probably will leave this feature turned on, and (when I remember) use it!
