I want to View Applications in Full Screen Mode. Can I Hide the Navigation Bar on Note8?

Last Update date : 2017.10.06

Using the Show and hide button at the left side of the navigation bar, you can set the navigation bar to be hidden or pinned on the screen when you use apps or features. The navigation bar is pinned by default.


If you want to view files or use apps in full screen, double-tap the Show and hide button to hide the navigation bar.



To show the navigation bar again, drag upwards from the bottom of the screen.


• On certain screens, such as the Home screen, the navigation bar will always be shown and the Show and hide button will not appear.


• Even after you pin the navigation bar, it can be hidden while using some apps or features, such as a video player.






To show the navigation bar, swipe inward from edge of the screen near the charging port
