Version of OS?

I will hazard the guess that you keyed CMD-D, not CTRL-D.  The former splits the “pane".

Once you have a split the pane, you should see two little “pane” icons on the right side of the pane in each of the newly split ones.

Two choices: CMD-SHIFT-D will delete one; so will clicking on one of those thingies on the right.

That’s how it has worked in the past, and on my 10.13 system now.
