I want to tile 3-4 windows on my screen. I don't know how to do this. I tried doing it by first tiling 2 windows and then the same for the third. However, that did not work. I did find one work-around and that was using shortcuts. But for that, I have to open shortcuts and then click on tile 3/4 windows option.

I am looking for a quicker way to do the same. I am NOT looking for any third party apps for the same (as I have seen other answers on this site suggesting). Please suggest me a quick built-in way to tile at least 3-4 windows (kind of like in Windows 11).

    AFAIK there isn't a built-in way for this. But please edit some details on which specific things you've looked at into your question and ask specifically for a built-in solution.

Window tiling is included in the new macOS 15 Sequoia (developers beta), see here:

Easy window tiling macOS

Easy window tiling

Drag windows to the edge of your screen to effortlessly arrange them into side-by-side tiles on your desktop, or place them in corners to keep even more apps in view.

Tiling with keyboard and menu shortcuts

Instantly move the app you’re using to a tiled position with dedicated keyboard shortcuts. Holding down the Option key while dragging a window shows you a preview of all your tiling options. And the green button on the top left of each window, along with the menu bar, gives you a quick way to choose from tiling options.

there is no built-in way to do this in the previous MacOS versions.


I know you said no third-party apps, but rectangle is completely free and works admirably. Link: https://rectangleapp.com/


Shortcuts app can be added to the MenuBar, which makes them fast and easy to use.

You simply drag it across to the Menu Bar folder in Shortcuts.app, or via the i button to the right of the Shortcuts.app window.

They are also available via the Services Menus.

You can also assign Keyboard-Shortcuts to any Shortcut via System Settings / Keyboard / Keyboard Shortcuts.
