    Hi Folks,
    l have a wierd pull out app menu/shortcuts bar at the bottom of my home screen, which looks like a blue half circle, and when selected there are shortcuts to Facebook etc. The problem is that l cannot find a way to get rid of it in any of the settings menus, and it persists in whatever app or video is on screen. Pressing and holding just allows me to move it around the bottom edge of the screen. Any help would be appreciated, l don't know what this thing is called which makes it very difficult to search for help.

    This is the dual pane window feature you have pulled up. To either use it or get rid of it simply long press on the back key

    keep your finger on the back key for couple of seconds it will dissapear, do it again it will come back, sort of like a toggle switch ;)

    oh by way, on that menu bar, you can drag any two apps to the main screen and it will split screen into two to use both together, just tap the back key at bottom right to close em.

    You can't by default. Probably possible once you are rooted. I also read on another forum about a workaround where you need to get a hold of original apk for the app, and recompile it with a few additional code lines to enable this app in multi window view. I'm just hoping someone will come up with a way to do it automatically through some app.
