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.

I have the same issue and I haven't found a setting to put it back to how I had it before the update. I do not like the smaller grid layouts because they are full of wasted space.
I really dislike the new 3 column layout. All my folders have gotten larger, and it is a royal pain to now get to apps as now they are not in the same place as my muscle memory has them. It tasks so much longer. Why not offer options Samsung! I am very disappointed and had I seen this post prior, I would have not updated my phone. Samsung fix this! Thank you for the post. If I see a fix I will contact you Hespy
Literally, who asked them to make that a permanent change without being able to customize it? That's been the entire point of Android vs other mobile OS's. Samsung, stop playing games with your fan base.
I had no idea something trivial like this could be so hugely annoying for me.
This really inconveniences me while using the phone and hope UI 3.0 next update will support better grid layout in folders.
Omg. My Note 20 Ultra just updated today and I have the 3 column folder issue. I HATE this. Why in the living would Samsung change this? Android is all about customization and I bought the Note because I use it for business. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!!!!!
I agree. Totally anoying and messes up every folder I have. Also noticed that font sizes for Google Calendar widget and several other widgets got larger for no reason and now don't display same amount of content as before. Adjusting system font size works but then makes everything else too small. Terrible changes that impact the usability of my S20 all day long.
