    Very recently a new tab has appeared on my home screen. It is in the lower right hand corner in the image. It's annoying and I'd like to know how to delete it. Can anyone help?

    If I open it and press its 'Edit' button I am told 'Additional apps that suppport multi window mode are stored here. To customize shortcuts, press and hold app and drag and drop it in the tray.'

    There doesn't seem to be a way to delete it or any of the shortcuts it contains, help!

    That is your "multi-window" tab - if you press and hold the back key, it should disappear. If you want to completely disable it, it should be in system settings / display / multi-window feature, uncheck.

    Hi. Sorry to bump this old thread, but I am having a similar problem. When my multi window tab appeared, I was unable to pull down my notifications bar at the top of the screen. I know how to disable the multiwindow..... but the problem is even when I disable it I STILL can't pull down my notifications. Right now I have an update notification that I can't view.
    Can anyone tell me how to reactivate the pulldown notifications?

    Have you tried rebooting?

    Omg, it worked. I thought about doing that earlier, but I was like, "nah, couldn't be that simple."
    Thanks! Now I feel silly for not rebooting earlier.
