Use Multi Window to use two apps simultaneously with Samsung TouchWiz
 

Multi Window is one of the most useful apps on Samsung TouchWiz. You can have two apps open on your screen at the same time. This is great. You can have the maps and Chrome open or the browser and your email. In bigger screens this is great to use and we use Multi Window on daily basis on our Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro.

There are a lot of hidden features and we will help you discover them and make your life easier. Remember that only applications displayed on the Multi window panel can be used with the Multi window feature.

ACTIVATE MULTI WINDOW

1. First you need to activate the feature. In new devices it’s on by default but we need to be sure. From your home screen, touch Settings and find Device tab.

2. Touch Multi window.

3. If necessary, touch the OFF / ON button to turn Multi window ON.

USE MULTI WINDOW

1. Swipe the right edge of the screen toward the center to display the Multi window panel. If you do nothing, after a few seconds, the panel will be hidden again.

2. Drag an app off the panel and release.

3. Drag a second app off of the panel and release it into one of the Multi Window highlighted windows (down or up).

4. Touch the blue dot to unhide some more options and controls

– Switch app to compact screen.
– Switch locations between Multi window applications.
– Share items between the application windows. Drag an item to share from one window to another. Some applications may not support this feature.
– Maximize the application.
– Close the application.

CREATE A PAIRED WINDOW

You can use Paired Windows to save the combination of current running Multi window applications. So then you can touch the paired button and the two apps appear on your screen. It’s clever and it’s fast.

On the Multi window panel:

1. Touch the two lines at end of the panel to access the panel controls.

2. Touch Create.

3. Enter a title and then touch OK.

EDIT THE MULTI WINDOW PANEL

You can configurate the multi window panel, add new apps, or remove apps.

On the Multi window panel:

1. Touch the 2 bars to access the panel controls.

2. Touch the pencil to Edit.

Now you can

– Remove an app from the panel: Touch and drag it off of the panel and place it in the
storage area.

– Add an app to the panel: Touch and drag it from the storage area to the panel.

– Relocate an app: Touch and drag it to a new location.

To save your changes: Touch Done.

To download new Multi window apps go to Play Store and find many more apps.
