Galaxy Note9 - Use the Naviagtion Bar (SM-N960W)

The Navigation Bar is the menu that appears on the bottom of your screen - it's the foundation of navigating your phone. However, it isn't set in stone; you can customize it. This includes making it appear or disappear, or changing its design and layout. Read on to learn how to customize the Navigation bar's settings.

Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

By default, your Navigation bar is set to appear and disappear when you're using specific apps and games. This is for convenience, so you don't accidentally touch a button when you're scrolling or playing a game. This function adds a small button to the left side of the Navigation bar.

1. Touch the small button, on the left side, two times in a row to make the Navigation bar disappear.
