I have an old Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet (GT-N8010), Jelly Bean 4.1.2.

Since the last firmware update, a multiwindow icon appeared in the lower right corner. Its purpose is to switch the current app from fullscreen to windowed. I don't use this feature, and the icon is right over the virtual keyboard -- very annoying. How can I disable it?

Thanks in advance.


For the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the MultiWindow function is part of the Display Settings. Most likely similar in your device.

Settings > Display > General > Multi window

Disable by unchecking the feature.

  • I believe your solution is valid for the phone version of Jelly Bean 4.1.2. Looks like the tablet version offers no way of disabling this feature. – dr_ Nov 26 '14 at 14:26
