Once in a lifetime till now you might have accidentally moved your Home Screen icons in the Samsung One UI 4.1 setup. You are not the first person in the world to face this problem, there are many.
Other than this your smartphone’s UI is fully capable to manage and locate those apps in a suitable place automatically. If you do not lock your home screen, the user interface will adjust them according to the layout dedicated to apps on the home screen.
There is one such solution available for the Samsung user that is locking the home screen layout with an option that is provided in the settings menu of your smartphone. Let me tell you how to do this.
How to lock your home screen icon in place?
To lock your Home Screen you need to follow certain steps on your Samsung Galaxy One UI 4.1 smartphone.
- Go to phone Settings
- Choose Home Screen
- Select the second last option from the menu ‘Lock Home Screen Layout‘
As soon as you select this option. It will prevent the items from your Home Screen to be misplaced or repositioned. All the on-screen elements, including icons, widgets, and web shortcuts, will retain their position until you unlock the home screen.
If the home screen does not have an empty space, a new shortcut is created in the new home screen upon the installation of a new app, that is why I think you should use the layout very smartly. I suggest you avoid installing too many apps unless you are using them. In this way, you can prevent your Samsung Galaxy phone’s home screen from looking cluttery.
