Navigation Bar settings on a Galaxy phone

The Navigation Bar is the menu that appears on the bottom of your screen - it's the foundation of navigating your phone. However, it isn't set in stone; you can customize the layout and button order, or even make it disappear entirely and use gestures to navigate your phone instead.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Change the Navigation Bar type

The Navigation bar is there to help you navigate your phone. The traditional navigation buttons are the default layout that appear at the bottom of the screen. 

If you want a full screen design, you can change the Navigation bar's layout to Full screen gestures. With this feature, the Navigation bar will disappear and you will need to swipe up to use its buttons.

From Settings, search for and select Navigation bar. Touch Navigation bar again and then choose between Navigation buttons and Full screen gestures
