Is there a way to get it back like on Note 2? It was so convenient especially in emails.
They actually created something I feel is even better. Pull out s-pen, when the action menu comes up, click on the one that says "pen window".
Draw a rectangle or square (for the size of the window you want open), then you'll have a choice (calculator, clock, youtube, phone, contacts, hangouts, internet). In your particular case, you'll be choosing internet.
You can do this with the multi-window, which means multi-tasking with 3 apps at the same time. I use multi-window more often than pen window, but in those few instances that I'm browsing for competitive pricing on a product, texting the info to someone, and also trying to get the calculations on total pricing, including tax...etc., to see if I'd have savings...yeah, works great for that rare instance.
Ok thanks I could not figure that feature out and have not taken the time to research. I just thought it was like a mini screen capture. Interesting. Thanks
Was just about to post exactly this, it's another great feature on the Note 3, didn't use it much on my Note 2 but it was handy when I did.
ok I tried this out in my email and I guess I am not "Gettin it" I see how it shrinks the browser, but when I am in an email and I have a link someone sends me there is no way to just get a little pop up in front of my email so I don't have to leave my email and go to the main browser. I don't know if this makes sense to you.
I was curious and just sent myself a link in email.
I held my s pen on it, it asked did I want to open it in a browser, I said yes.
then some different options came up, including POP UP Browser! Yay!
also have option to choose just once, or always. so maybe the functionality is there after all! Check it out and see if that is what you are looking for.
I like the way it works too! Need to remember this. Thanks for getting me looking!
You are lucky Dustwun77 I still don't have that option. bummer.
Just found a pop up browser in play store that I can open in front of my emails. seems to work good.
I am really surprised. I thought I had found the answer for you.
I am glad you found something that works though!
OK, so I get what you're saying, but if that is what you were trying to accomplish, why not use multi-window?
With Multi-window, you could have your email up and browser side-by-side or top and bottom.
Same here. What carrier Note 3 version are you using dustwun77?
Good point I definitely could do that thanks.
I texted myself a link... I use ATT messageing app.
got the link.. but could not get a pop up window to show....
I am on Sprint. Rooted phone, custom rom, 2 of them actually, works on both of them the same way.
