    What apps are you trying to use the multi screen option?

    Hi Rockdog97, I was trying to open Gallery and Internet together. Unfortunately the multiscreen icon wasn't displaying. I am assuming a factory reset is what is needed. Appreciate your asking.

    No, I decided to wait until after the holiday period here when the household has calmed down. Many thanks for asking.

    Hi Rockdog97, I have eventually discovered the answer to my problem. After speaking to 3 technicians two who were as baffled as I was who were suggesting a factory reset. The 3rd technician seemed to know about the misding icon. Samsung recently updated software for the jellybean and the multiscreen icon no longer appears on the top toolbar where it used to reside. The updated software now gives an option of a multiscreen or cascade view. To have two programs running e.g. internet & gallery simply select 1 of the 2 then go to the bottom of the screen, click on the arrow in the centre to bring up the icons and in the far left corner will now be the option of dual view as it isnow called or alternatively cascade view. It works. Hope this explanation may be of some help to others. Thanks.

    There is no suchvicon any longer. It does not come up on the quick settings menue eulither.

    Just tap the lower left button.
    Close all apps.
    Double tap the lower left button.
    Recent apps will come up.
    Select the app that has the multi screen icon and tap it. It will open up in split screen.
