    Having problem with switch apps on tablet


    Hey there! I disabled app switching on my tablet touchscreen (Windows 8.1) but this keeps happening:

    Any idea how to disable this?

    Thank you in advance!


    Edit: did some more research and this isnt app switching, it's split screen apparently... I can't seem to find a way to disable that, so if anyone knew how to, I would appreciate it.

    I really don't think there is a way to disable split screen with a general setting or simple registry change in Windows 8/8.1. It's a basic functionality of the operating system.
