When calling switch-to-buffer-other-window interactive function the first time, the window is split horizontally.
I would like the window to split vertically instead of horizontally by default.
Is it possible to achieve that?

  • This is a duplicate, but I may not have found it in the initial Google searches. See the doc-strings for the variables split-width-threshold and split-height-thershold ... See also split-window-preferred-function. Maybe the following thread qualifies as the duplicate ("Prefer vertical splits over horizontal ones"): emacs.stackexchange.com/questions/39034/…
