Default After Update Can't Get Rid Of Side Tab On Screen

So this is about my wife's S3. She hates that tab. She took the earlier smaller update that recently came out and after that this stupid tab showed up. I talked to the manager of my local Verizon store and he showed me how to get rid of it but I have yet to be able to do so myself. So please help! Thanks!

Sounds like you're talking about the multiwindow tab? Just press and hold the back key for a few seconds and it will go away. Alternatively, I believe there should be a toggle in the notification drawer for "multi-window" which should also get rid of it.

Just shows you how uneducated the verizon staff are
The tab can actually be useful sometimes. It lets you drag two apps onto the screen at the same time
For a UK prepay sim with unlimited data, unlimited text, 250mins for 12p/m, no contract, no catch (runs on o2 network)
