    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 :banghead::banghead:
    The tab can actually be useful sometimes. It lets you drag two apps onto the screen at the same time :thumbup:
