VSCode has horizontal splitting. Though the one thing it can't do currently is have separate windows on different monitors. Though I just open up a second instance and then load in the folders without it being a "Workplace".

Yes. You can toggle splitting orientation with:

  • Ctrl + Shift + P (Command Palette)
  • Toggle Vertical/Horizontal Editor Layout.

I can't figure out how to active it. I can just drag a tab and activate the vertical split but no luck horizontally.

Just need to drag it to the bottom. Maybe go a little side to side while you are at the bottom. Maybe the hotarea isn't that obvious
