Hi,

After opening the second user account for the Samsung Tab S7 I connected it to the Samsung Keyboard. To my surprise, I keep getting messages that the DeX mode can not be activated for the second user. I´ve seen on this forum that this issue was raised two years ago already. Is it possible that this simple topic (as it seems to me) can not be resolved? If there is the solution to this problem, I would be happy to get feedback. Many thanks

Hi, I did it on the standard way: https://www.samsung.com/my/support/mobile-devices/how-to-add-additional-user-accounts-to-my-galaxy-t...

The second account is operational. But it can not be used in the DeX mode, that is the issue

Hi TheGalaxy, thanks, but this is not the solution to the issue with DeX mode for two users on one device

DeX does not support multiuser.

Hi Bill-e, thanks for your reply. That means that the Galaxy Tab series is not a true multiuser device.
