When it comes to premium smartphones, Galaxy S6 is an ideal example. If you own it, then you know of what I am talking about. However, as your S6 fills up, it can become more difficult than ever to find what you want, when you want it, so it’s time to take action and find a solution as soon as possible. Samsung’s response to this increasing demand is none other than S Finder, which you’ll find in the notification panel at the bottom left.
All you have to do is to swipe down from the top of the screen, tap S Finder, and type in your search. It covers all your files, apps, photos and contacts, but it can also search for settings. In fact, this is the major advantage that you should know about from the start: S Finder makes it easier than ever before to search for a wide variety of content on your Galaxy S6 device in just a few seconds.
For example, you could enter “wallpaper” and then quickly access the Wallpaper Settings page from the search results. That’s how simple is to find what you are truly looking for, so carefully follow the steps from below and you’ll succeed:
How to Use S Finder on your Galaxy S6 Device:
- Open the Notification Panel by swiping your finger from the top of the screen to the bottom; like that, you can always access the S finder option;
- Up next, just touch S Finder;
- Enter a keyword in the Search box to begin searching whatever you might be looking for: as pictures, files, contacts, settings and more;

- Save search history: place a check mark next to this feature if you want to turn it on, so starting to this moment, a history of your search entries will display in a list under the Search box.
- Delete history: do you have something to hide? It’s your phone, so do what you want with it in order to feel safe and keep sensitive into away from curious eyes. All you have to do is to select results from your search history to delete;
