Multi Windows on Your Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK

By Corey Sandler

How smart is the tiny processor inside your Tab 4 NOOK? It’s so smart it can walk and chew gum at the same time. Or display a map of the fabulous island of Malta (it deserves a high spot on your bucket list) at the same time you research the price and availability of pickled white asparagus.

Whatever particular combination of interests somehow manage to occupy your very crowded mind, you can use a special feature of Samsung tablets called multi windows.


You first have to turn on multi windows:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to display the notification panel.

  2. Tap the Settings (gear) icon.

  3. If it isn’t already selected, choose the Device tab at the top.

  4. On the left panel, move the Multi Windows switch to the green On position.

  5. Swipe in from the right side of any screen.

    You see apps that you can run in multi windows. Tap the Menu icon at the bottom and then tap Edit to add or remove apps from the panel.


Once it’s on, you can turn the feature on or off by pulling down the notification panel from the top of the screen and tapping the Multi Windows icon. Green means it’s available, gray means it’s not.
