How To Customize Multi Window On Samsung Galaxy S4

Learn how to customize the apps in the Multi Window on your Samsung Galaxy S4. The applications found within the apps panel of the Multi window can be organized by either being rearranged or removed.

To rearrange the Multi window applications:

Activate the Multi window feature.

Tap the tab to display the apps panel (containing the scrollable apps).

In a single motion, touch and hold a desired app until it detaches from the panel, then carefully drag it to a new location in the list of apps. Lift your finger or stylus off the screen to let go of the app and drop it into its new location.

To remove a Multi window application:

Activate the Multi window feature.

Tap the tab to display the apps panel (containing the scrollable apps).

Tap the Edit button (located at the bottom of the list) to reveal a staging area that can house any removed applications from the Multi window panel.

Tap Done once you have completed the removal process.

To restore a Multi window application:

Tap the tab to display the apps panel (containing the scrollable apps).

Tap the Edit button (located at the bottom of the list) to reveal the staging area containing any previously removed apps.

Locate the desired application.

In a single motion, touch and hold a desired app until it detaches from the staging area, then carefully drag it to a new location in the current list of apps.

Using Multi Window to run multiple apps on the same screen on Samsung Galaxy S4

Any of the apps found within the Multi window panel can be run at the same time as a current on-screen app. Once multiple apps are running on the same screen, you can then choose to either swap their positions or maximize a desired app.

Note: Only applications found within the Multi-window panel can be active atop another current application on the screen.

When launching applications that contain multimedia files (music/video), audio from both files will be played simultaneously.

In this example we will be launching both the Internet and Maps applications.

Launch an application such as Maps.

  • From the Home screen, tap Internet icon.

Activate the Multi window feature.

Tap the tab to display the apps panel.

Touch and hold the desired app, such as Maps, until it detaches from the panel.

In a single motion, drag it over the current app and drop the new Multi window app over either the top or bottom area of the current on-screen app.

Note: Once two applications are running, the device displays a split screen view containing both the initial app and the new Multi window app. Each application is still independent of the other.

To switch the arrangement of the applications:

With the two applications shown in a split screen, tap the Border bar to show the on-screen icons.

Tap the desired application area (top or bottom).

Locate and tap Switch app location icon. The current apps are switched.

To increase the size of a desired application window:

With the two applications shown in a split screen, locate the Border bar indicating the edge of the app window.

In a single motion, touch and hold the Border bar then drag it to resize the desired window.

To split the current applications:

With the two applications shown in a split screen, tap the Border bar to show the on-screen icons.

Tap the desired application area (top or bottom).

Locate and tap (Maximize the app) icon. The current apps are the both maximized.

To exit the Multi window app, tap X close icon.
