Using Multi Window Mode on Your Galaxy Tab E NOOK

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

Apps that support Multi window displays 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.
