[HOW TO] Enable Multi-Window Mode on Android 6.0

This is a hidden feature in Android 6.0, (multi window). It has its warnings:


So decide if this is actually for you before following these steps

It’s not shown in user builds, so we have to do some messing. You’ll either need root or a custom recovery to do this, but as not everyone wants root, here’s how you do it with TWRP, a USB cable, and a PC with ADB:

1. Boot your device into recovery
2. Mount your system by going to Mounts > Tick System
3. On your PC open a command line, somewhere like your desktop is useful
4. Type the following command:

HTML Code:
adb pull /system/build.prop

5. Open the build.prop file with your favourite (decent) editor, I recommend using Notepad++ on Windows
6. Find the “ro.build.type” line
7. Change the text after = to “userdebug” from “user”
BONUS: If you want a nicer DPI here, change the line “ro.sf.lcd_density” to your preferred DPI
8. Save the file
9. Go back to the command line and enter the following command:

HTML Code:
adb push build.prop /system/

10. Now open a shell doing:

HTML Code:
adb shell

11. Now a adb shell will open, enter these commands:

HTML Code:
cd system
chmod
644 build.prop

12. Reboot the device as normal
13. When the device has booted, go to the developer options
14. Scroll down to the bottom of the “Drawing” category
15. Enable multi-window and have some fun!

If you’re rooted…
1. Download “Build.prop editor”

 2. Find “ro.build.type”

3. Edit it to have the value “userdebug” from “user”

4. Reboot when prompted
5. When the device has booted, go to the developer options
6. Scroll down to the bottom of the “Drawing” category
7. Enable multi-window and have some fun!
