Tech Tips: Multi-Window Mode

In our fast-paced world we are rarely doing just one thing at a time.

That’s why the Samsung Galaxy Tab S has Multi Window mode - which lets you open two apps side by side, instead of constantly switching back and forth.

First things first – let’s turn it on.

Enabling Multi Window mode is easy.

-Simply tap “Apps,” -“Settings,” -“Device,” -“Multi Window,” -and then change it to “ON.”

While you are in the “Device” section, be sure to also enable “Open in Multi Window View.” This shortcut allows you to open all files and email attachments side by side, making work that much easier.

You can also customize how you want the Multi Window tray to look.

Just tap and hold an app. Drag it to where you want it and let go.

If you get bored of one app, tap “Panel Controls,” followed by “Edit,” then drag the app to the storage area. If you want to use it again, just drag it from the storage area back to the tray.

If you consistently use two apps at the same time, you can create a window group to save even more time. Simply open the two apps in Multi Window, then scroll to the bottom of the tray, tap “Panel Controls,” and then “Create.” The new app friendship will be stored in the tray for the next time you need it.
