How Do I open apps in multiple windows simultaneously on my Samsung Galaxy Note3?
Enabling the Multi Window Feature
The multi window feature allows you to have two apps open, in two different windows, simulataneously on your device. This is especially useful for, say, copying images from a web browser to a note in S Note or chatting on Facebook while browsing your photos in the Gallery app.
Before you can use this feature you must make sure it is enabled on your device. To do so, follow these steps, and then proceed through the next pages to learn how to use the feature.
