How to enable Split View Mode on Skype

As we said, Skype is easy to use, but if you are new, you might need a helping hand at the start. You can enable Split View Mode, and once you do, when you click on each contact, the chat window will be separated from the Skype window (that has the contact list, settings, etc.). Some users prefer it. Let’s see how to enable it:

  • Open Skype on your PC
  • Click on three dots located above the list of contacts, right next to your name.
  • You will see a few options there, along with “Enable Split View Mode.”
  • Click on that option
  • The changes are made
  • If you want to go back to the regular viewing mode, click on three dots once again, and then click “Disable Split View Mode.”

That’s it. Try both modes and see which one suits you better.
