Android 11 update issues with app folder layout

Hello everyone,

 

First time poster to the forums as I am unable to locate any help with the issue I am facing. As of this morning 7:00am PST my phone updated to Android 11 and it said the update was successful. I haven't gone through all the options available as of yet.

 

However, when swiping down on the screen to check my notifications, if I tap on any one app whether it be a mobile game, social media, news or whatever, I'm immediately taken back to the lock screen of my phone. The selected app never opens and the notifications remain. Has anyone else been encountering this issue?

 

I've restarted the device a few times and disconnected from WiFi to see if there is any change. I don't necessarily want to reset the phone so I'm curious to know if there are any other steps that can be provided before I start the path of having to reset my phone.

 

Thanks!

Options to pick are better than a fixed amount.

My note 10+ did the same thing and I can't figure it out and I hate it!

there is no place to change it back. Some folders now have two scrolling screens of apps.

Doesn't change folders, only home screens :expressionless_face:

Have the exact problem, updated my S20+ ultra today and all folders is 3 columns only. Changing grid back and fourth from 5x6 does not help at all, even tested to restart phone after changing. This is so annoying, have searched youtube for answers to this problem but nothing. I seriously think this is an UI3.0 bug :) Samsung, fix this now.

A friend posted on reddit for me. Only responses he has so far suggests Nova Launcher and use of Good Lock. I am still hoping to find a setting rather than go either of those routes.

I have always had 3 x 3 apps in folders. Good visually.

I don't care about visually. I like 4 or more for productivity speed. I put these apps in a folder because I want quick access. Now I have to take a second action to get the ones that no longer fit on the first page.

Exactly, I want my folders to have only one page, like they did

That's great if that's what you've always had, but some if us have always had 4 columns and it's very annoying to have it changed without the option to change it back.
