But there is no visibility or tracking number for the resolution of this valid and warranted request. Not even the forum threads can be used because access is apparently restricted after a period of time. Yeah the instruction is only a workaround. And i miss the translation functionality, since i'm reading a lot of english literature and english is not my primary language. But at the moment, it seems to be the only way to get rid of air commands. I don't believe Samsung is ever going to implement the option to disable it unless they lose customers, because there are threads about this problem from 2017 and nothing is happening - and this is not a problem, you need 2 years to fix. The only thing we can do is not to buy and not to recommend Samsung Tablets with S-Pen if the goal is productivity, becaus air commands messes everything up.

I've started the same Discussion and somehow i am not able to reply there anymore, so i copy paste my answer to this discussion, so you guys can see the solution, too: A few days ago i've got the new Android 9 Update and it's still not possible to deactivate the air commands, so i guess samsung is not gonna let us disable the air commands via settings. Whatever; I've found a way to deinstall Air Commands WITHOUT ROOT, so you can use your S-Pen Button with other apps. It's working with my Galxy Tab S3 perfectly. Note: After deinstalling air commands, the "S-Pen Settings" will be disabled, too. So you can not set up you're S-Pen (like activating or deactivating hover etc.). So set up your S-Pen properly before deinstalling Air-Commands. You also won't able to use the Translate function, since the only way to start it is Aircommands. But If you do a factory reset air commands will reappear and you can set up your S-Pen again and use the translate function. With this method, you can deinstall also another apps you don't need. 1. Install App Inspector from playstore 2. Enable USB debugging on your Tablet/Phone 3. Install Android Debug Bridge (ADB) 4. Start App Inspector and look for S-Pen Commands or Air Commands; Tap it, so you can see details. In the details you need to remember the "package name". (It's something like "com.samsung.android.aircommands" if i remember correctly, but check it for your self) 5. Connect your phone to your Computer 6. Run the command "adb devices" on your command-line console, to check if your phone is connected properly if you see your phone listed, it is connected 7. Run the command "adb shell" on your command-line console; now you can run commands on your phone. 8.Now run in the adb shell the command "pm uninstall -k --user 0 <package name>" (don't forget to replace <package name> by the name of the package you're going to deinstall) 9. Be happy!
