How to enable and use split screen for the Samsung Galaxy S5.
For the longest time the only way to multitask on Android cell phones, was to hit that home button and keep it pressed for a second or two to bring up a list of the active programs. This way you could quite rapidly switch between apps.
This was great for multitasking on your cell phone. However as smartphone screens grew bigger some bright head over at Samsung decided that it should be possible to have two apps open at the same time. Samsung decided to call this new feature Multi window. To get it up and running on your Galaxy S5 you have to enable it in the settings menu. Let me show you how.
How to multitask on the Galaxy S5.
- From the home screen press the apps button in the bottom right corner.
- Find and press the settings icon.
- Under sound and display, press the multi window icon.
- Flick the switch at the top of the screen to the right to enable the feature.
If you found this useful why not
Once you have completed the steps in the tutorial above you have enabled split screen. To make sure you got it right check your screen for a grey semi circle.
Now that you have enabled it let me show you how it works.
First of all you need to hit the semicircle with your finger to bring multi window to the top. Once you have done this all you have to do is to drag icons from the leftmost menu to the window you want it to open in.
You can resize the window by pressing and holding the circle in the middle of the screen and quite simply dragging it to the position you want it to be.
Before I leave you to it, all that is left to do is to tell you about the last few options of the multi window. To bring up a menu where you can amongst other switch sides among the active windows, all you have to do is slightly tap the circle in the middle.
