What is the Multi Window feature and how Do I use it on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S?

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018

By using the multi window feature on the device you are able to view content in up to four windows simultaneously.

Swipe from the right edge of the screen or press and hold the Back key to access the multi window tray from any screen.




Select an application from the multi window tray, in this example we will use the Messages app, and drag it out from the tray.




Once the app has opened you can then drag another app to the main screen (in this example we will use the Gallery app).




When the second app is dragged and dropped on to the main screen the screen will divide in half and the second app will open alongside the first one.


Multi Window Control  


Touch the blue dot in the centre of the screen to access additional options. These options are, from top to bottom:


Open a list of recently used applications in the selected window.


Have the open apps switch windows.



Share items, such as images, text and links, by dragging and dropping them from one window to another.


Maximise the selected window.


Close the selected application.
