    Change grid sizes after the One UI 6.0 update

    Tips & Tricks

    Samsung's new One UI 6.0 update brought some visual changes to the UI. Some are significant, such as the redesigned quick toggle area and Media Controller widget, and others are smaller, like the new One UI Sans system-wide typeface.

    Another aesthetic modification introduced by One UI has to do with grid sizes. One UI 6.0 changed the grid sizes for the home screen, the apps drawer, and even folders. And this can have a massive impact on how your app shortcut arrangement looks like.

    But to be more specific, Samsung's One UI 6.0 update merely modified the default values for grid sizes. Grids can still be customized, and you can easily return to the configuration you were using before One UI 6.

    In case you're relatively new to One UI, here's our short guide to changing grid sizes.

    Change grid sizes in One UI 6.0

    All you need to do to change grid sizes in One UI 6.0 is to perform a pinch gesture on the home screen and access “Settings.

    Then, at the top of the settings screen, you'll see three options: “Home screen grid,” “Apps screen grid,” and “Folder grid.”

    Tapping each one of these three options allows you to change the grid size for these elements individually.

    Home screen and app screen grids can be 4×5, 4×6, 5×5, or 5×6. These can all be previewed without applying any changes to the UI. Once you decide which grid sizes to use, tap “Done.”

    As for folder sizes, you can choose between two grids: 3×4 or 4×4.

    Imagine this: You just bought a new Galaxy S24, and to keep it safe from damage and screen scratches, you wrapped it up in a case and put a screen protector on it. Fantastic!

    I've been a fan of Samsung's Modes and Routines tool for years, but the feeling that it could use a few more options never went away. In fact, as my Samsung device ecosystem expanded, that feeling became more prominent. Granted, you can create plenty of fun and useful automations when you pair a Samsung smart […]

    Samsung better not remove Notification Categories in One UI!

    The Notification Categories feature is among the most useful and well-integrated One UI elements. I'd go as far as to say it's probably underrated, but that doesn't really bother me as long as the feature exists and remains a part of One UI. To be frank, the thought that Samsung might be preparing to remove […]
