Learn how to use motions on your Samsung Galaxy Note Pro. Simple motions allow easy control of the device. Before using motions, make sure the motion feature is activated.

  • From a Home screen, touch Apps icon > Settings icon > Motions and gestures > Motions.
  • Touch the OFF / ON button to turn the feature ON icon.

Note: Excessive shaking or impact to the device may result in unintended inputs. Control motions properly.

Rotating the Screen

  • Many applications allow display in either portrait or landscape orientation. Rotating the device causes the display to automatically adjust to fit the new screen orientation.

  • To prevent the display from rotating automatically, open the Notification Panel and deselect Screen rotation.

Note: To move an icon to a new location, touch and hold it and drag it to the target position.

Panning to Browse
