How do I manage Apps on my Galaxy S9/S9+?
Organise your home screen and find your favourite apps faster and easier.
Switch between Home screen and Apps screen
Without using the Apps button, you can open the Apps screen by swiping upwards or downwards on the Home screen. To return to the Home screen, swipe upwards or downwards on the Apps screen.
Alternatively, tap the Home button or the Back button.
Showing the Apps button on the Home screen
If you want to open the Apps screen using the Apps button, please follow these steps:
Add an App to the Home screen
Delete an App from the Home screen
Group Apps and create folders
To keep your screen neat and quickly access and launch apps you can group similar applications in folders.
Drop the app when a folder frame appears around the apps.
A new folder containing the selected apps will be created. Tap “Enter folder name” and enter a folder name.
Moving apps from a folder: Tap and hold an app and drag it to a new location.
Deleting a folder: Tap and hold a folder, and then tap ‘Delete’. Only the folder will be deleted. The folder’s apps will be relocated to the Apps screen.
Uninstall or disable downloaded applications
To uninstall a downloaded application, you simply must tap and hold the app and select the option Uninstall.
There are some default apps that cannot be uninstalled from the device. These can be disabled by tapping and holding the app and selecting the option Disable.
