Unlocking the Power of Split Screen View and Multi-Window Option on Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Hey there! Today, I want to share with you a handy trick that’ll take your Samsung Galaxy Note 9 experience to the next level. Are you ready to unlock the full potential of your device? Let’s dive in and learn how to use the amazing Split Screen View and Multi-Window Option!

First things first, let’s talk about Split Screen View. This nifty feature allows you to have two apps open and running side by side on your Note 9’s beautiful display. Gone are the days of constantly switching between apps and losing your train of thought. With Split Screen View, you can multitask like a pro!

Here’s how it works. Open an app of your choice, let’s say YouTube. Now, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the recent apps menu. You’ll see all your recently used apps displayed. Tap on the app you want to open alongside YouTube, let’s say Chrome.

Congratulations, you’ve just activated Split Screen View! You’ll now see both apps running simultaneously. You can adjust the size of each app’s window by dragging the divider between them. Need to focus on one app more than the other? Simply double-tap the divider to expand the app you want to prioritize. It’s that easy!

But wait, there’s more! Let’s move on to the Multi-Window Option. This awesome feature allows you to open multiple instances of the same app. Just imagine the possibilities! You can compare documents, chat with friends while browsing the internet, or even keep an eye on multiple social media feeds at once.

To activate Multi-Window Option, long-press the app icon in the recent apps menu. A list of options will appear, including “Open in split screen view” and “Open in pop-up view”. Tap on “Open in split screen view” and voila! You can now enjoy the same app running in two different windows. Go ahead, give it a try!

Now that you know the magic behind Split Screen View and Multi-Window Option, the possibilities are endless. Browse the web while watching a YouTube tutorial, take notes while reading an e-book, or chat with friends while keeping an eye on your favorite game. With these features, you can truly make the most of your Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

So go ahead, be the multitasking genius you were meant to be. Embrace the power of Split Screen View and Multi-Window Option, and let your productivity soar to new heights. Your Note 9 is ready to unleash its full potential, and I’m here to guide you every step of the way. Happy multitasking!

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is a super powerful smartphone packed with a bunch of fancy features. It’s got a big 4000-mAH battery and 128 GB of storage, so you can tackle all kinds of heavy-duty tasks without worrying about running out of juice. And let me tell you, its Infinity Display is something else. This thing has a huge 6.4-inch screen with barely any bezels, and the resolution is absolutely bonkers at 2960 x 1440. Plus, you can even split the screen and have two apps running side by side. Pretty sweet, huh?

Now, let me show you how to unleash the power of multi-window mode on your Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

How to Turn On Multi-Window Mode

Activate Multi-Window Mode Manually

Enabling multi-window, or split screen mode, on your Note 9 is a breeze.

  1. Tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Scroll down and find the Multi-Window option under Device.
  3. You’ll see a toggle switch at the top right corner; simply drag the toggle to On.
  4. If you want apps to open in multi-window mode by default, check the box next to Open in multi-window view.

Once you’ve turned on the feature, you’ll see a half circle symbol on your Galaxy Note 9 screen. This means that you’ve successfully enabled the Split Screen Mode. If you tap the half circle, the multi-window view will appear at the top of your screen. From there, you can move any app you want into the multi-window view. And hey, you can even adjust the size of the window to make it easier on your eyes.

Oh, and guess what? There’s more than one way to open multi-window mode.

Directly Open Apps in Multi-Window Mode

If you’ve been using an app lately and you want to open it in multi-window mode, I’ve got you covered.

  1. First, tap on the Recent button, which is located to the left of the Home button.
  2. Next, find the app you want to open and select “Open in split screen view” from the context menu that pops up.

It’s important to note that not all apps support multi-window mode. If you don’t see the option to open in the split-screen window, then unfortunately, your app is not compatible with that feature.

How to Turn off Multi-Window Mode

When you’re finished using the multi-window mode, you’ll want to turn it off so you can focus on one app at a time. Deactivating multi-window mode is easy.

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Tap the Home button.

2. The multi-window icon will appear at the top of the screen. Tap the circled-X to close multi-window mode.

Your running apps will still be accessible in the Recent section.

Now, let’s talk about how to activate Popup View.

Popup View is a great feature of the split-screen functionality. It allows you to open an app in a smaller window, so it takes up less space on your screen.

To open an app in Popup View, follow these steps:

1. Tap on Recent (to the left of the Home button).

2. Tap the app you want to open, and select “Open in pop-up view” from the context menu.

Once the app is open in Popup View, you can drag it around the screen to find the best spot. You can also use the controls that appear at the top of the app.

The first control, the two interlocking rectangles, adjusts the app’s transparency. You can make it more transparent or solid, depending on your preference.

The second control, the two opposing arrows, turns the app into a free-floating icon. This allows it to move around your screen, and you can reopen it later by tapping on it. You can actually have multiple apps in icon mode.

The third control, the two-headed arrow, returns the app to its full size.

The fourth control, the X, closes the app and ends Popup View mode.

Now, let’s talk about App Pairing.

Instead of rearranging your screen every time you want to use two apps together, you can set up App Pairing. This feature lets your Samsung device know that these two apps should always be opened together.

Setting up App Pairing is easy peasy lemon squeezy.

  1. First, open the Apps Edge panel by swiping the Edge panel to the left.
  2. Next, tap Edit, and then tap “Create App Pair”.
  3. Now, choose two apps from the list of available apps. Make sure to select the app you want to be on top first.
  4. Once you’re done, just tap “Done”.
  5. Finally, tap the Home button.

Now you’ve successfully paired these two apps. To open an app pair, simply swipe the Edge panel to the left to open the Apps Edge panel, and then tap the desired app pair icon.
