    Hi all

    Just got this tab for wife, anyway for the life of me I cant find nor figure out how to use multi window on the thing. Holding the back key doesnt enable the side bar like on my s3, nor is there an option to enable it in the notification bar.

    I googled around and there is a bunch of review type sites saying that the tab has it so yeah what am I missing.

    Cheers

    For better exposure I moved your question (thread) to the area (forum) where your table is discussed.

    holding the back key will only work if you have the multi window option turned on in the notification shade. if the option is not there then you can go into settings display notification panel and adjust it there I believe.

    The 10.1 inch version doesnt have multi window, I was so disappointed with this tab I've just taken it back and got the previous model, the tab 2, so much happier already.
    The tab 3 doesnt even have the pop up tray at the bottom!
    I really couldn't see a notable reason for the

    The ten also does not do screen mirroring, the tab 3 8.0 does, Apparently the intel chip does not play nice with mirroring.
