    I'm having exactly the same problem. My Note 8.0 automatically updated to Andriod 4.2.2 and now the multi window function is greyed out and won't work. Similarly, the weather app is broken and won't pick up my city.
    Go to Setting> Change the HOME SETTING SCREEN to standard..and voila multi windows works as usual.

    I had the same problem-lost the weather element from home screen after update. Found it in Widgets & dropped it back on to home screen. Hope this helps.

    Multi window works fine on note 8. You guys really need to learn how to use your tablets.

    I have the samsung galaxy note 8.0 the wifi one and since the upgrade I also have lost my multifunction it is greyed out and for you to say we should know how to use our tablets I think it is very nasty of you to say that as I have tried everything except re-installing which I am not very happy to do so how did you sort it out as I would be very pleased if you could advise me what to do.

    I hate to say it, the only way I got it back was to do the factory reset. I hated having to do this after sending mine in for repair and then finally getting a replacement. In total I think I did 5 resets, it got easier each time. I never found anything on this forum that had a simpler cure. I hate resets as much as anyone but look on the bright side, it gives you the inspiration to clean up your home screens and remove(or don't put back) what you don't use. I agree with you, there is no point in getting nasty with frustrated users that are looking for help, if theirs works good for them, it is not the case for everyone.

    I did what you said but it didn't work for me , I am really upset about this happening as I bought this for the multifunction and for this to happen just because of the update I think it is really bad.

    Setting screen mode to Standard didn't work for me either. Whats the latest on this Multi Window issue, any fixes coming; ie any idea when the next Android update might be? I also can't get Chrome to open, which may be something other than 4.2.2 issue, I'm new to Android and Note 8. Maybe its a setup issue? Should I / can I use Firefox or other browser?
    Thanks!

    Nothing works but the factory reset. Ive had my tab about aweek so didnt lose data but some settings. So far seems all is now well. Multi windows and 4.2.2 restored. I took a photo of my various desktops sk just have to put back.

    There's a plethora of browsers incluxing some that will do flash. Just go to the playstore. Re chrome just uninstall it in settings and reinstall in playstore shud solve problem.

    Does anyone know how to shut-off the auto update feature so my Note 8 will Not keep forcing me to try and update to 4.2.2? It's really annoying since, apparently, this will ruin my multi-window function. I'm currently running the version it came with: Android 4.1.2. Thanks!

    Just got the galaxy note 8.0 about 10 days ago. After the recent android update same issues as others. No side bar and multi screen is greyed out. Other day viewing this website parts of website/screen was blacked out. Also was trying to email.. when typing each letter would double. When trying to erase it just kept typing letters until like the 5th or 6th click then would erase. Also update to apps... find that certain ones now do not work period. Black screen and error messages. FUN (sarcastically speaking.) ...I agree with others that samsung should fix their issues and the android issues as well and not have to "rollback." They must know about it but probably say they dont so the company doesn't look bad.. my guess. Doesnt the note 10.1 have a much newer android version? If so, how come its not available on the note 8.0?

    As I posted earlier in this thread, the dreaded factory reset is the only cure I could find, and it solved the problem. Mine has been working fine since. I have multi-windows and everything else is functioning fine. Truly a pain in the ****, but at least it is cureable.

    Before I updated to 4.2.2, I had a preinstalled app called Notes, which was a blue notebook icon. After the update, it wasn't there. Does anyone know where I can restore the Notes app?

    Search for an apk file of it and sideload it.
