How do I manage my apps?
Please note: the steps described below relate to devices running Android Pie and above. The steps may vary depending on your device and version of Android that it is running. The available options may also differ according to the app that is being moved.
Please note: if you are experiencing problems with specific apps you should visit the app developer’s website to help resolve your problem.
Please note: To install, some apps will ask for you to review and grant access permissions. Tap "Accept" to grant permission.
Please note: some apps cannot be uninstalled. For most of these, you will see an option to 'Disable' instead of uninstall. Find out how to remove or disable embedded apps. Take care when disabling apps. Some may be needed for the running of basic functions on your device. For example, if you disable the Play Store, you will no longer be able to download or update apps from the Play Store.
Please note: The Secure Folder is currently available on devices running on Android Nougat 7.0 and above.
Please note: Most apps are developed to be run from internal storage and not from SD cards. Some developers still allow apps to be moved to an SD card, but this can result in usability issues. TIP: if you are trying to save storage space, try setting your photos and videos to save to the SD card first (or to automatically back up via Wi-Fi) before attempting to move apps. You may also choose to clear your device’s cache data to save space and speed up your device.
Please note: If the "Change" option is greyed out or not available, this app is not able to be moved. If you have an SD card installed but are unable to move any of your apps, you should check it is installed correctly.
Please note: data charges may apply if you select "Over any network".
Please note: app notifications depend on the version of Android that your device is running.
Please note: only apps that follow the Multi-Window format for Android Nougat and above can be used as part of an app pair for Galaxy Edge devices. You can also use the same app (e.g. Samsung Internet + Samsung Internet) to open two browser windows.
Please note: it is not possible to open all types of apps in split screen view or pop-up view, therefore you may not always see this option when tapping on app icons.
