What to do if pressing the S Pen doesn't activate Air Command

 

If Air Command doesn't appear when you press the S Pen button (and your S Pen is within range of your device), then it's most likely because Air Command is switched off in your settings.

1 In the home screen, choose Apps
2 Choose Settings
3 Choose S Pen
4 Choose Air Command
5 Slide the Air Command switch on

You can also make Air Command activate automatically whenever you remove the S Pen from the slot by going to:

Apps > Settings > S Pen > Detachment options then select Air Command
