    Welcome to Android Central! Are you using the browser? There's a limit to how many open windows/tabs your browser can have opened. Windows are like the tabs on your computer browser, which allows you to have multiple webpages open at a time. If you keep tapping on links outside of the browser, it will open that link up in a new browser window--but the other windows won't close unless you close them. So when you reach the maximum number of open windows allowed, you'll get that error.

    Tap the window/tab icon at the top of the browser screen (or tap Menu to see if the option is there). You should then see a representation of all open tabs. Swipe away tabs to close them, or tap on the X associated with each tab (it varies with the browser).

    I tried every possible thing as advised still getting the message from windows Limit reached
    Surely this must be an oversight by galaxy S5. Never had any problems with earlier models.
    Samsung S5 should Update all windows and remove the tab. If it appears again you can try Restart. It stop the note. Good luck

    Window icon is small rectangle located in upper rt next to clock, when on a site. Click on it, display is previous windows. Hit minus sign to delete.

    I kept getting it also even after closing all tabs. It seemed to happen on facebook when using a Google search instead of the app. Once I added the app the tab limit stopped showing up and I could open links

    My browser doesn't have the icon with the number of tabs on it anymore. Where did it go, and how do I get it back?

    I don't have little box beside the clock. Obviously something is wrong when you have so many people having the same problem & it's not getting resolved with your suggestions you have provided. This problem is preventing me from applying for jobs. Is there a # we can call to get assistance
