How to disable the automatic multi-display feature on a Samsung TV

If you’ve ever wanted to know how to disable Auto Multi View on a Samsung TV, you’ve probably found yourself a little annoyed with the shiny new Neo QLED TV you picked up in the Black Friday deals. You’ve been there too, my friend.

See, while Samsung makes some of the best TVs out there, they aren’t flawless, and like any other tech product, they have advantages and features that can be pretty frustrating. The automatic multi-display is one of those.

Multi View, Samsung’s split screen feature that allows two things to run simultaneously, is not a problem in itself. In fact, it can be really useful, especially on the big TV, allowing you to stream a movie with your family while also keeping an eye on football scores. However, the problem is that your Samsung TV will likely come with Autoplay The multi-display feature is turned on by default. What this means is that whenever you mirror your phone screen or cast something to your TV, Multi View automatically launches, whether you want it to happen or not.

You’ll then find yourself with two screens running simultaneously when you only want one, causing you to fumble trying to switch screens and lock the correct screen (which, in my experience, is a problem – Samsung TV’s operating system isn’t quite as smooth). It’s super annoying when it happens all the time, especially if you’re like me watching TV a lot. Fortunately, turning off is easy, and this guide is here to show you how to do it.
