Switch the Position of the Navigation Buttons on Galaxy S9
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 was the first Samsung phone with on-screen navigation buttons and this came as a big change for the company and its users too! By default, though, the Galaxy S8 puts those virtual buttons in the same position as Samsung’s older phones, with the “back” button to the right of the “home” button, and the “multitasking” button to the left.
If you’ve bought the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and you find yourself not being able to adjust well to the new order of the navigation buttons, you’re not alone. Even more, if the Galaxy S9 is your first Samsung handset, it may take some time getting used to having the Back button on the right of the Home button, and Recent’s to the left.
Thanks to the buttons being purely on-screen, there you can choose to switch the buttons around to where many people think they should be – Recents on the right and Back to the left of the Home button.
