Galaxy S6 - Pin applications to the screen (SM-G920W8)

Last Update date : Jun 14. 2019

Pin app window

You can pin an application to the screen of your device. This feature locks your device so the person using it has access to only the pinned application. Pinning an application also prevents other applications and features from causing interruptions, and it keeps you from accidentally exiting the application.

Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Turn on pin windows

1 From the Home screen, touch Apps.
2 Touch Settings.
3 Scroll to and touch Lock screen and security.
4 Touch Other security settings.
5 Scroll to and touch Pin windows.
6 Touch the slider to turn Pin windows on.

Pin an application to the screen

Calling, messaging, and other functions may not be available while an application is pinned to the screen. Access to other applications will be prevented.

With the Pin windows feature turned on, you can pin an application to your screen.

1 Open the application you want to pin and touch the Recents key.
2 Touch the Pin icon (in the bottom-right corner of the application window).
3 Review the information about pinning applications and touch START.
4 The application will pin to the screen, and your device will display the "Application locked on screen" message.

Unpin an application

1 Touch and hold the Recents key and Back key on your device simultaneously.
2 The application will unpin from the screen, and your device will display the "Application no longer locked on screen" message.
