Multitask on Your Tablet
There are times you wish you had two tablets- that way, you could send an email on one but read an article on another. With Multi Window, you can open two apps on one tablet screen and use them simultaneously, making multi-tasking easier and faster than ever.
Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
Put away your second tablet, and just follow the instructions below to learn how to open Multi Window on your tablet.
To access Recent apps, touch Recent in the navigation bar. To launch an app in split screen view, touch Multi Window in the title bar. To open another app in split screen view, touch a second app from RECENT or MORE APPS. Select the second app you want to open in split screen view. The apps will display on top of one another and you can use both at the same time.
But wait, there's more. Multi Window has controls to make using two apps at once even more seamless.
Touch the blue line in between the two apps to open up the Multi Window Menu:
A. Add App pair on Home screen: This will make a shortcut for the two apps you are currently using. When you touch the App pair, both will be opened together in a split-screen view.
B. Switch windows: Switch locations between Multi Window apps.
C. Open in pop-up window: Open the selected app in a pop-up window.
D. Close app: Close the selected app.
