How to turn off icon frames?

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I'm loving my Galaxy S10+ and I'm really liking the Samsung One UI. In fact, this is there first phone in which I haven't immediately switched to Nova launcher! However, I can't stand how the phone is putting frames around all of my icons - even on the icons of the non-Samsung apps. Some of them look ridiculous with the frames! Is there a way to turn off the icon frames if third party apps? If so, how???

Hey @pjniez, there is no direct way to do this. What you can do to accomplish this is download a third party app from the Google Play Store called QuickShortcutMaker (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sika524.android.quickshortcut)

Install that, open it up and type in the search bar: Icon frames

One app should now be listed, the settings app. Click on it to drop down two options. Click the first on the drop down, the one labeled "icon frames." Next, press "try." You can now turn them off.

I've attached an image for reference purposes.

Hope that helps!

The app didn't work for me. This was available in older software versions, but the brilliant minds over at Google decided it was no longer necessary.

Hi Rydah,

Your suggestion worked! Thank you very much!

It would be nice if there was an option to turn off icon frames built into the OS/UI though... Hopefully Samsung can give us this option on a future update!

But, for now, I'll continue to use QuickShortcutMaker as you suggested.

Thanks again!

@pjniez What's ridiculous is Samsung DID have this feature built in previously. I was able to remove the icon frames under Display in settings on all my previous Samsung devices. I don't know why they'd take that away πŸ™„

Hmm... Upon further review, this setting only removed the frames on some app icons. But not for others. Any idea why this setting is able to remove the icon frames for some apps and not for others?

Your solution is a good workaround. But ideally the real solution should be that this setting should not be hidden. It should be available to us to change directly in the settings without having to use a third party so e to give us access to it!

I hesitate and cringe every time a system update becomes available. They always manage to screw up something. Yes, in every previous Galaxy I have owned you could turn off the app icon frames but suddenly the option no longer exists. Thank you so much for this system "improvement", Samsung.

You could always go to the Galaxy themes store and download an icon pack 😊
