    Thumbs down Annoying Sidebar .... What Mental Midget Thought That Was A Good Idea ?

    Just came over from the N4 on AT&T.

    I'm able to stomach almost everything on the new Touchwiz except the confounded sidebar.

    I have never once purposely opened it but my big sausage fingers accidentally open it about every 15 seconds, and then its in my way.

    Other than rooting, does anyone know if theres a way to make the sidebar go away ?

    I have moved it from one side to the other but nothing helps.

    I want it gone !

    There is a manual that came with a phone and also the manual sticky thread.
    Having said that... I can't find it in the manual, lol. (didn't look to well though)

    If I remember correctly I think you just hold down the back button.. not sure if this is a perm fix though.

    I'm pretty sure you can completely disable it somewhere in settings. I think there's also a quick toggle for it

    Tap twice and hold down on the second tap

    Thankfully it can be removed. In the time I got to fiddle with the phone I found it rather irritating, and not really all that useful.

    Like someone else already said, just holding down the back button will get rid of it.

    It's useful if you want the split screen but other than that not too much benefit since they limited the apps they made available. Once we get the bootloader opened up we can see about more stuff in there like they did on the Note 2

    The easy way to do it is hold down the back button - it will go away
    same to make it re-appear

    Thats for the multi window, drag one of the apps on the sidebar to the top and another on the bottom to run 2 apps at the same time
