  1. I accidentally turn this split screen on every time I click the recent button, and the mode is trash. I can’t read news or surf 9gag on this mode, and it crashes several apps. Sometimes I also have difficulty dragging the border down so i deactivate it.

    Split screen is absolutely useless to me, such a small screen is never desired. It’s also completely impossible to get rid of, but any help de-activating this feature (bug?) is highly appreciated.
