How to Multitask from the Recent Apps Screen in Samsung Galaxy S8+(SM-G955)?

Last Update Date : Mar 21. 2018

Apps that support Multi-window are displayed side by side 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. 

Navigate to Recent → Multiwindow → MORE APPS → Google Chrome → Divider → Close


Pictorial representation of the above settings are as follows :  


a). From any screen, touch Recent.




b). To launch an app in split screen view, touch Multi Window on the title bar.




c). You can select another app to display in split-screen view from RECENT APPS or MORE APPS. For this example, view all Multi Window supported apps by touching MORE APPS.




d). Select the desired app. For this example, touch Chrome.




e). To display the Multi Window controller, touch the Divider.




NOTE : You can adjust the display ratio by dragging the blue line up or down.


f). To exit Multi Window, touch Close.




NOTE : From left to right:
Snap - Snaps the selected window to the half of the screen it occupies.
Switch Windows - Swap the positions of the Multi Window apps.
Open in Pop-Up Window - Open the selected app in a pop-up window.
Close App - Close the selected app.
