    I'd like to connect my Macbook Pro to an external monitor that splits the screen like this:

    But when it's not connecting to an external monitor, it goes back to having a single program take up the entire screen.

    Is there any app or setting that can automate this, so I don't have to spend 10 minutes configuring the windows every time I connect the external monitor?

    That's just two programs that have had their windows resized. Its nothing more then someone manually configuring the windows that way.

    There is an app called split screen that will do all kinds of screen splitting for you.
