On a macOS system, a third-party app offers the most convenient way to use a key combination to snap an app to a side of the screen. I use the Magnet app ($7.99) on my device. Once installed and configured from the Mac App Store, the key combinations (as shown in Figure C) that move the active app to either side of the screen are:
- control + option + left arrow, to position an app on the left, and
- control + option + right arrow, to position an app on the right.
(Note: If you prefer not to purchase a third-party app, Apple does offer a manual way to move apps to a portion of the screen that uses app positioning options, rather than keyboard controls.)
