Organize your Samsung Note folders on your Galaxy Note20

The Samsung Notes app on your Galaxy Note20 5G or Note20 Ultra 5G has been improved: you can now organize your notes into folders and subfolders. Studying for an exam and need your notes in a separate place? No problem, just add folders to help keep all of your lecture notes in one spot. Or, add a few subfolders to narrow down certain topics and ideas. You can also choose from twelve new page templates when writing a note, like grids or lined paper.

Note styles

The Samsung Notes app on your Galaxy Note20 5G series device features two unique note styles. The Individual page style has fixed separators in between each page, so you can keep track of the number of pages you’ve written. The Infinite scrolling style, however, is one seamless page.

Note styles

To choose your note style, open the Samsung Notes app, and then tap Menu (the three horizontal lines). Tap Settings (the gear icon), and then tap Note style. Tap Individual pages or Infinite scrolling page, and then tap the Back arrow.

Page templates

Do you miss traditional lined paper? Just set a page template in Samsung Notes to make your digital notes feel more like the real thing. You can select a template before or after writing a note. If you select it after jotting down some text, everything you’ve written will adjust to the template’s layout.

To begin, open the Samsung Notes app, and then tap Add (the plus sign) at the bottom. You can start typing your note or pop out the S Pen to draw on the screen. To select a template for your note, tap More options (the three vertical dots), and then tap Page template.

Page templates

Swipe up to see all the available templates. Simply tap a template to select it. You can also add your own templates by tapping Add (the plus sign) and choosing from your Gallery. These templates will be added at the bottom of the screen under Downloaded. When you’re finished with your note, tap the Back arrow and your note will be saved under All notes. Tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and then tap All notes to view it.

The Page template option only appears when you are in Edit mode. It will not appear if you are viewing a saved note.

Folder structure

Whether you’re creating one new folder or several, they can all be viewed and edited in the app’s menu.

Open the Samsung Notes app, and then tap Menu (the three horizontal lines). Tap Manage folders to view your current folders.

Folder structure

Tap + Add folder to add a new folder, and then enter a name for the folder. Tap Done. Your new folder will appear under Folders. If you’d like to add a subfolder, tap the folder you just created, and then tap Add subfolder in the popup menu. Name your subfolder, and then tap Done. You’ll see your subfolder underneath your original folder. If you don’t like the names you entered for the folders, you can change them. Tap a folder, and then tap Rename in the popup menu. You can also remove a folder by tapping Delete. Keep in mind that deleting a folder will also remove its contents.

Misplaced notes

With all the notes you’ve created, you may lose track of one or two. You can locate it right from the menu, and then add it to a folder so you can find it again.

Open the Samsung Notes app, and then tap Menu (the three horizontal lines). Tap All notes at the top, and then swipe up to find your missing note.

Misplaced notes

Press and hold the note once you’ve found it, and then choose from the options at the bottom of the screen. You can move it to a new folder or an existing folder, so you’ll be able to find it later. This menu also lets you lock the note, save the note as a file, share the note, or delete it.
