I want to know if there is any keyboard shortcut to switch between splits screen in all new El Capitan.

Here is another partial solution. If you split your screen between two windows of the same program, e.g. Safari, then Cmd+` (backtick) will toggle between the two.

Caveats and Special Cases:

  • If for some reason this does not work, you probably don't have this shortcut enabled. The answer at https://superuser.com/a/187072 explains how to do this.
  • This was tested on High Sierra, but should work just the same on El Capitan, and so on.

I really hope someone has a better answer, but if not, Command+Tab works if the two last apps you've touched are the two apps being splitscreened.

    Cmd+tab won't work. That lists all the running apps. Switching turns hard with that. – Abhimanyu Aryan Oct 25 '15 at 2:25
  • @androidplusios.design It lists all the running apps if you hold it down. If you press it and quickly release it, it just switches between the two most recent apps. – user24601 Oct 25 '15 at 2:26

    And may be the recent apps aren't on same split screen. – Abhimanyu Aryan Oct 25 '15 at 2:27

    I know. That's why I said "if the two last apps you've touched are the two apps being splitscreened." – user24601 Oct 25 '15 at 2:28

    I don't have a designated keyboard shortcut for switching between the two apps on my screen. I'm just telling you my workaround so you can use it while I join you in waiting for someone with a better answer to show up. – user24601 Oct 25 '15 at 2:28

Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Keyboard

Click the ^f4 and type your prefered shortcut. (I set mine to control tab)

It is possible

For Google Chrome for macOS users:

Hit Control + F4 to go the right screen.

Hit Control + Shift + F4 to go to the left screen.
