Luís de Sousa answered on Ask Ubuntu:

To set a window occupying the left half of the screen use this shortcut:

Ctrl + Super +

For the right half:

Ctrl + Super +

Super is the Windows key.

If you drag the windows to either corner of the screen, they will snap into place. To snap them back to their original size just click and drag away from the side of the screen again.

  • I understand, but it kind of tedious, that's why I'm asking. But thanks buddy!

    @RolandiXor most OSes have a shortcut - like Ubuntu GNOME has Super + Arrow.
