Split screen, move windows and maximize on Linux mint/Ubuntu

In this article you can find how to use split screen for Linux Mint or Ubuntu. This feature is extremely useful if you have one big monitor ( 24' or 27' ) or if you need to start several terminals. Personally I'm using it on a daily basis.

You can find all the details listed in the article below. In short:

  • SUPER(Win) + - If you want to push window to the left half and ALT + F10 - to maximize it
  • SUPER(Win) + - If you want to push window to the right half and ALT + F10 - to maximize it

This is how split screen look like on my 24' monitor and how you can do it:
