This is an interesting task and sometime it is used for multi task when you need two screens at a time. If you want to use two apps on the screen at once then you can swipe in from the right or the left side of the windows screen, you have to swipe it slowly. (How to Swipe - for get a new app to appear on left you have to swipe from left, and for getting a new app to appear on right you have to swipe from right.) if you are unable to handle the speed of swipe then you have another shortcut option, just swipe down from the top of the screen, then right or left  ("L" shape) it depend on your choice.
