Windows 8 – Snap an app: Use two apps at the same time

Here is a recent post from the Microsoft “Getting to know Windows” Site:

Keep an eye on your music playlist while you work on a report. Compare your favorite team’s schedule with your own calendar. You can get more done when you snap a second app to the left or right side of your screen. Apps do all the same things when they’re snapped as they do when full sized, but they’ll make smart adjustments to fit the smaller size. Experiment with different layouts to find out what works best for you.

If you want to snap the app you were just using, here’s how:

Windows 8 -  Slide in from the left edge With touch, slide your finger in from the left edge to bring in the second app, and then drag that app to the left or right side of the screen until an opening appears behind it.
Windows 8 - Move mouse pointer to upper-left corner and then drag the app With a mouse, move your pointer into the upper-left corner until the second app appears, and then drag that app to the left or right side of the screen until an opening appears behind it.

If you want to snap a different app that you used recently, here’s how:

Windows 8 - Drag an app from the list of open apps With touch or a mouse, open a list of recently used apps. Drag the app you want to the left or right side of the screen until an opening appears behind it.
