Change the Keyboard Mode on my Galaxy Fold & Z Fold2

Last Update date : Oct 08. 2020

When you first start using the Galaxy Fold or Z Fold2, you will notice that the preloaded keyboard on the main screen is split in two. This is so that you can easily reach all of the keys with the Galaxy Fold open. Just because it comes preloaded with the split keyboard, doesn’t mean you’re stuck with it. You can change the layout to a full screen keyboard or a keyboard that appears to float above your app. Simply follow the below guide for step-by-step instructions.

Please Note: This guide is designed for Australian varaiant Galaxy devices, if you have an international device and require further support click here to get in touch with your Samsung subsidiary.
