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.
As a result, if Easy mode is enabled, you can’t use Multi window feature

※Please note:

When using Easy mode it is still possible to have the home screen set to the normal Touch Wizz Home, and not the Touch Wizz easy home screen mode – which can in some cases lead to misunderstanding as the device may at first glance to appear to not be in Easy Mode, when is actually is.
