Why Air Command icon disappeared in Samsung Galaxy Note8?

Last Update Date : Mar 30. 2018

Samsung is aware of this symptom which may appear on some limited Note 8 Devices and this issue has already been resolved with a software update. Please update your Note 8 device to the latest version via FOTA or Smart Switch PC. Samsung always encourages users to keep software and apps updated to the latest version.


Below are the steps required to activate the Air Command Panel.


1. Detach the S Pen from the slot or hover the S Pen over the screen and press the S Pen button or you can also Tap the Air Command Icon with the S Pen.

2. If air command is not activated even though your device is based on the latest software version, please check whether you had ever activated any menus in Accessibility. 

Note: Some features (i.e. Air view, Air command, Edge panels, Multi window) are not available while you are using specific menus of Accessibility. (i.e. Voice Assistant, Magnifier window, Magnification gestures etc.)
