Split screen on galaxy S20 ultra

Hello,

When I split my screen on other android devices I usually can choose from recently opened apps, but on my S20 Ultra I get a long list of apps or have to only choose from my edge panel. When I deactivated my edge panel, I still did not not get my recent apps, I got a long list of apps to choose from. Also, once I choose an app, I cannot change it. To change an app is split view I have to start over and split then choose again. In the past I used to just click on the 3 lines and get recent apps to replace one of the split screens.

 

How do I get my device to view recent apps when I split screen? And how do I change my split screen by using the 3 lines button instead of starting all over again?

I have just tried this just a second ago basically you got to drag your app from recent movie you may see a box open above it don't put it in there just move it away and release the app and it should open while it's in split screen

I don't want to choose from the edge panel, I want it to open my recent taps.

I don't see any recent apps when I split my screen, I only get my edge panel or an app list.

I want to choose from recent open tabs.

Yes, there are 4 apps in my edge panel, but still I don't want to choose from the edge panel. I want to choose from all my recent apps and want to be able to change my split apps. I prefer the recent taps coz I can see all the taps with previews, and I can later change and resellect my multi window.

basically what you do is use your phone as normal open your app then close it but don't fully close it then choose another app and so on and so on but then choose wanna put it in split screen then keep your phone on the screen push up and you'll see a symbol then release it then you can actually scroll sideways see all your recent apps what was opened it
