    Default Is There Any Way To get Rid Of That Slide Out Tray On The Side Of The Note 2?

    It obscures stuff we want to see on the main screen. And it's really pointless and redundant anyway. Anything in there is already on one home screen or another.

    HELP

    Long press the back button for about two seconds and it will go away. Long press the back button and will return whenever you need it.

    HELP
    You can also get rid of it under setting-display-multi window. This gets rid of it all the time until you check the box again.

    You could also hold the tab and move it around the screen to get it away from the numbers on the keyboard....

    Its not annoying. It lets you run 2 apps at the same time side by side.
