Right so this is one of those things I would have thought is absurdly simple and easy to do, but doesn't really seem to exist without paying about £80 for some professional software; and it's that infuriating thing where every time somebody has asked the question on Google, people just respond with "But why don't you just do X or Y instead" or "But that's what [similar but crucially different thing] is for!"
So what I want to do is split my 21:9 monitor into two virtual monitors. You know, so it's sort of like I've got two 4:3 monitors next to each other, or a 16:9 next to a little rectangle, that kind of thing, except they're on this one panel. No, using FancyZones doesn't do what I want, that just snaps windows. I want to have it be virtual discrete monitors, because I have some programs and a fair few games that I don't like running windowed, I'd prefer to have them "fullscreen" so there's no title bar/taskbar wasting space. Thus in order to run them visibly side by side with other programs I need the computer to see the screen space as two distinct monitors, like when you physically have two monitors plugged in, just in this case, on the same physical screen.
Is this some kind of weird voodoo black magic I'm asking for? I previously thought this is what "borderless window" mode is meant to be for, but for some reason on my computer, that acts for all intents and purposes as the exact same thing as fullscreen. So it's no use to me, because it doesn't enable multi-tasking at all.
Surely I can't be the first person in history who wants to do this in this manner? There has to be some kind of open source app to do it, I feel like I'm just googling the wrong thing and it's driving me mad.
