Q: I can’t activate the Multi window feature of Galaxy S5. There is no response when I try to touch and drag the activation switch to the right to enable the feature. Is my device faulty?


A : If you cannot activate the Multi window feature, please check whether Easy mode on device is enabled or not. 


Easy mode lets you use your device with a simpler home screen layout and straight forward application interactions, but it limits the some of features available.
