Fortunately, there is a way around this minor but common problem: one-handed mode. The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus's single-interface design supports convenient one-handed operation as well as many other features designed for one-handed operation. So when the need actually feels, you can do all your work with just your thumb to tame the big screen.
Read on to discover how to activate the one-handed mode on the Galaxy Note 10 to improve your productivity.
1. Turn on one-handed mode
Almost all Samsung phones have this clever mode. From a simple gesture, you can simply reduce the display to a fraction of what it was before. You can then access it easily with just your thumb.
The best thing? You can also change the side according to your convenience. To activate the one-handed mode on your Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus, go to Settings> Advanced Features> Moves and Gestures> One-Hand Mode.
Choose one of the options, and that's it! My favorite? The gesture is. Just slide diagonally from the corner and you're ready to go.
2. Move the edge handles
Dashboards are handy when you need to spot your favorite apps. But is not the handle a little higher on the screen? Most of the time, I have to tighten my phone a little louder, then try to activate the panels again.
Fortunately, the panels can easily be resized and moved to the location of your choice. For example, if you want to place them on the left side of the screen down, you can do it easily.
Open the dashboard and tap the Settings icon in the lower left corner. Then, tap the three-dot icon in the upper right corner and select Dashboard handle.
Drag the tiny red circle to change the position of the handle. At the same time, drag the slider under Size to increase or decrease it.
reyou know: You can also add third-party edge descriptors.
3. Get the operation of the hand + App
The Samsung Hand Operation + is an interesting app to have if you want to tweak your phone to make it user-friendly for one-handed use.
It brings gesture navigation to the edge of your screen. So if you want to go back or show the Recent menu, you can slide your finger horizontally on the screen to do the job. Cool, no?
In addition, these gestures are customizable and you can also choose the side of the handles. At present, each handle supports three gestures: diagonal up, horizontal and diagonal down.
Once you have downloaded and installed this application, turn it on and switch the switch to one of the handles. Note that the border panel handles and the manual + operation should not overlap, otherwise you will not get the desired results.
In addition to these gestures, you can also enable long wipes on the screen.
4. Enable a mini task bar style
Another clever one-handed tip for the Note 10 Plus is to activate the Mini mode in the Recent menu. This reduces the Overview Selection menu to one-third of its size. The taskbar looks great and is at the same time easily accessible. So yes, you do not have to look for this horrible three-dot menu at the end of the screen.
However, this is not an integrated feature of the unique UI, yet. You need to install the Samsung Good Lock app or this application.
For the ignorant, Good Lock is a Samsung application that offers a multitude of customization features. From changing the task viewer to changing the appearance of the lock screen, you can do a lot with that.
Once you have installed Good Lock, press Task Changer to install the module. Once done, open it and select a style below the layout type. Then, switch the switch to Mini mode.
Now open the Recent menu. Yes, you can thank me later.
5. Enable the home screen gestures
Lower the notification panel with a swish. Go to the Home screen setting (long-press the Home screen), and then toggle the switch to the "Drag down to …" option. Simple, see.
Pro Tip: Lower the Google search bar at the bottom of the screen to make searching faster with one hand easier.
6. Activate one-handed mode
Worried about dropping your phone when you type? The solution? Yes, you guessed it – the one-handed mode.
The good news is that the Samsung keyboard is also equipped with one-handed mode. And it's easy enough to activate. All you have to do is click on the three-point menu in the corner and select Modes.
Then select the One-handed mode, and that's it. The default side is correct. To change it, tap the small arrow icon on the left.
To restore its standard size, tap the small arrow icon in the left corner.
Besides the Samsung keyboard, most popular keyboards such as Gboard and SwiftKey come with one-handed mode.
Tame the big screen like a pro
This is how you were able to activate the one-handed mode on the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus. And hey, do not forget to explore the same features on Samsung Internet. At the latest news, they included great features for one-handed use.
