How do I use S Finder to Search for Content on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5?

S Finder makes it easy to search for a wide variety of content on your device and on the internet. You can enter keywords using your voice or the keyboard.

Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Use S Finder

  1. To access S Finder from any menu or application, open the Notification Panel by swiping from the top of the screen to the bottom.
  2. Touch the S Finder shortcut.

    It may be necessary to swipe left on the Quick Panel shortcuts and then touch the S Finder shortcut.

  3. Enter a keyword in the search box to begin searching the device.
  4. In the example below, we have added the Images filter to narrow our search to only pictures with Ruth tagged in them.
  5. Remove a filter by touching the minus sign next to the filter name.

S Finder Settings

Touch More options > Settings for the following options:

  • Select search category: Unmark the checkboxes next to the categories you want to exclude from S Finder searches. By default, all categories are included in the search.
  • Use search history: Have your device display previous search terms first in your search results.
