# Open helm search result in a new window?

Commands like helm-projectile-grep, helm-swoop, projectile-find-file are extremely useful for jumping around code. However, so far I've not found how I can open a search result in a new window (instead, right now pressing RET with a search result highlighted opens the search result in the window from which the original search command was executed).

I want to be able to optionally open a search result highlighted in the *helm grep* mode either in a horizontally or a vertically tiled window. For instance, I'd like the following functionality:

• Pressing RET opens the highlighted result in the current window
• Pressing C-c h RET opens the highlighted result in a new, horizontally tiled window
• Pressing C-c v RET opens the highlighted result in a new, vertically tiled window

Here's an illustration:

Is something like this possible? Thanks for your time!

C-z will bring up a new buffer with actions available to helm, and I see the following:  [f1] Open file [f2] Open file other window [f3] Save results in buffer [f4] Edit search results 
So you want C-z f3
After this you can move around the results like a regular buffer, and if you have two windows up, hitting RET on a result entry will open the entry in the other window.
• In fact you just need to press F3, C-z first is not required – Steve Lorimer Oct 3 '18 at 2:01
• What function do you have associated to C-z? I'm on Linux, that makes my Emacs go to sleep (suspend-frame) – Gauthier Mar 4 '20 at 12:28
• @Gauthier Yeah this answer is for spacemacs, TAB brings up the available actions to helm – Swedgin Mar 5 '20 at 8:58
