    Okay I know that's not really a good way to ask and I hope I can explain this so somebody don't understand it but I'm previous notes and I think it was on my S8 plus you could drag the screen down from the corner and kind of move the open screen out of the way so you can open something else from your home screen can we do that on this Note 8, does anybody understand what I'm trying to ask?

    Yes if you look at I believe it was Flossy’s recent Note 8 review he showed you can resize an app window by holding finger down from corner of screen and resize the window.

    Well that does reduce the screen size but I also remember that it would open on top of another screen and you would see that screen underneath . Like for instance, I'm trying to send a text message and send them a phone number I have in my contact list I could reduce the message screen and go to my contacts and pull up that phone number,copy and then go back to my message screen by enlarging that screen again and continue what I was doing

    Try pulling down from the top right instead of the top left it works that way - just did it on my Note8 and it worked.

    You are pulling from the top right if the screen right? Including the notification bar? You pull from there, not below the notification bar. I made that mistake before.

    It's really odd but it was so easy to do on my previous phones, , as a matter of fact I would manage to make it slide down without even trying. I'm sure there is a setting somewhere, I just have to find it... And BTW anyone know what it's actually called?

    Angle your slide more to the side, diagnonally. Maybe the angle isn't enough.

    Works with Nova.
