My apps don't fill the screen on my Galaxy Note8

Because this device has a taller screen size, some apps will not make use of the full screen.

These apps will be displayed in the conventional size, which stops them from filling the screen.

 

You can convert these apps to use the full screen, but you have to do it for each app.

 

How do I convert apps to use the full screen?

1 From the home screen, swipe up to choose apps

2 Choose Settings

3 Choose Display
My apps don't fill the screen on my Galaxy Note8
4 Choose Full screen apps
My apps don't fill the screen on my Galaxy Note8
5 Choose the slider to enable or disable full screen for that app. Full screen is enabled when the slider turns blue.
