In the recent apps screen, long-press the icon at the top of one of your apps, then select Open in Split Screen, then choose the second app.

Even easier -- for some reason I was thinking a long press was required in your step 3 when I originally responded. Thanks for clarifying.

Can you give more details on how to return the old feature for multiple screens? It was working fine. Don't know why Samsung changed it

With the updated goodlock in the galaxy store, there is a plugin that brings back all the old, extra split screen features with some new ones as well.
