I'm not able to find where I can turn on screen rotation for ho.e screen on Samsung S8+ Is it not at all possible or it is just because of Samsung's launcher which doesn't allow this?

Hello @user94pqVd6gXX

The home screen itself won't rotate if the device is set on it's side, but most apps do have the ability to rotate when the auto rotate is turned on in Settings.

While the home screen can't rotate, you can set up Auto Rotate simply by making sure that the Quick Setting is toggled On when you pull down the quick settings near your notification bar.  Smiley Happy

This function is locked on s8 by Samsung ( on s9 it works ) because they wanted to make s9 better tan s8 . If you root s8 and change in  config file one lane it would work . Samsung this type of limitation is stupid! Ok ar emoji ( you aible to  add them even on note 1 ) but you need  to make more sales points Smiley Sad

2.turn off the autorotation in setting

3. Use the app to rotate screen

But at the end it wont display all apps properly

Actually if you go to home screen settings and scroll down, you will find something preventing you from turning your phone sideways. Just turn it off and that's it.
