Galaxy View: How do I use Multi Window Mode on my Samsung Galaxy View?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Multi Window

Multi window view lets you easily complete multiple tasks on one screen. For example, you can take notes while watching a video, or search the web and check your email messages simultaneously. The most commonly used applications are available in the Multi window tray.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Using Multi Window View

Apps that support Multi window display together on a split screen. You can switch between the apps, adjust the size of their display on the screen, and copy information from one app to the other.

1. From any screen, touch and hold Recent apps 1.


2. Touch an application to open in split view.

4. Touch the split bar in the middle to reveal the Multi Window icons.


Following options are available:

You can also launch recently used apps directly into Multi window view:
