JUMP TO SOLUTION

I am learning doing my due diligence pays off. 

 

Process below. 

 

Step 1: Go to Settings or swipe down from top of screen and Tap the little sprocket at top to get into settings.

 

Step 2: Scroll down and Select Display

 

Step 3: Within this preselected Display screen of settings You will now look for option Home below option Screen Resolution select HOME!

 

****NOW YOU ARE IN THE SCREEN TO ADJUST FOR THE OPTION PORTRAIT MODE****

 

Step 4: SCROLL DOWN! Below Quick-open Notification Panel you will see:

 

***Portrait mode only***

(prevent the homescreen from rotating to landscape mode)

 

When I got into this screen it was already selected. I turned it off by deselecting it and 

 

POOF!

 

Eureka IT WORKS! 

 

 

 

 

***If for any reason this wasn't clear message me or respond and I'll do my best to respond back and see of I can help.***

I'm experiencing so many errors and inconsistencies with this editor that prevent me from posting screenshots and other data.    The most easy and straightforward tasks become virtually impossible here.

 

anyway, I don't see step 4 on my note 8.

 

samsung experience home version 9.0.10.76.

 

Please share screenshots.

 

Thanks

I want to preface this going forward. I am not a technologist nor am I a Samsung Tech. 

I have been waiting and continuously checking this phone. I never checked this area of the phone so quite frankly I dont know how long this feature was here. 

 

A.) Samsung makes a software update.

 

B.) Carriers Get software updates next. 

 

C.) There are waves of software updates pushed to people (how maybe carriers disclose this) 

 

I would call the carrier you have and ask when your wave may hit the phone. 

 

Please have your phone info on hand when you do make the call to your carrier. 

 

Samsung experience Version 

Samsung Note 8 Version 

 

 

Please be patient and contact your carrier. 

 

Lastly All questions as of now unless I know it off hand are geared toward Note 8 and samsung related apps associated to this model. 

 

Best of luck people.
