Ok so serious question here, I upgraded from the Note 4 and there was a quick settings toggle icon to disable accidentally activating multi-window. I can't seem to find this setting (if there is one) on the edge+. I love phablets because of the screen size for media purposes but I've never had a use for multi-window and split-screen viewing, I'm not much of a multi-tasker.

Does anyone know how I can disable this without rooting so I don't accidentally shrink my apps when swiping from the corners? Also not like that they changed the long press of the multi-task button from menu to split-screen function. I was very used to using that button to pop the menu up :S

Unfortunately they removed that toggle for the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, and S6 Edge+ the way to activated is through the long press of the recent apps button and there is no way to switch it off.

Thank You, Robby!

It's ridiculous that Samsung doesn't have an option to turn that off. It's unbelievably Annoying. I never would have thought to look for an app just to do that, so your solution here is most appreciated!!! :)

I found this thread on Google. I just got an S7 a week ago and the split window function has been driving me freakin crazy. Fortunately this app works on the S7 as well. Lifesaver.

So, even when using the multitask thing and turning it off so it won't split, now the screen acts like I have hit the key to the left of the bottom button and brings up the close screen option. This happens every couple letters I try to type. Any suggestions? I'm going mad!
