Tablet Mode?

Is there any way to make all the apps act like the tablet version counterpart when opening the Fold? For instance, YouTube. On my S4, you can scroll through comments on the right side while watching video on the left. Also Flipboard. You can flip through screens in a Tablet, but the Fold only lets you scroll vertically when open.

yes.

even if you change the text/scaling to the Smallest in the Display Settings, its not QUITE there as a setting for "Tablet Mode". you end up at like 742 DP or something if i recall correctly.

Step #1: enabling Developer Options. -> Settings -> About Phone -> Software Information -> Tap the Build Number multiple times, until it says "You are now a Developer"

Step #2: back to Settings front page -> now, at the bottom under About Phone, you should see Developer Options -> In the Drawing portion -> Minimum Width: it should be around 742 DP like i mentioned earlier. -> now change this number to 800

changing it to 800 DP will ensure that your device will be in Tablet Mode all the time.

and since you're there in the Drawing portion: change the Window Animation Scale, Transition Animation Scale, and Animator Animation Scale to: .5x
this will cut all your animation and transition times in half.

it is the only way to use this device if you ask me.
good luck!

Any idea what it's set to on the front screen? I adjusted mine and I can't get it back

you can try the simple way (which doesn't seem to work anymore on newer androids): turn OFF Developer Options, and Restart your Phone.

if not,

Settings -> Apps -> All -> Settings -> Storage -> Clear Data

that should do it for you. a restart after clearing might not hurt too.

good luck!

Is there any way to set the front screen dp separate from the main screen? When I set the min width to 800, the front screen's app title becomes way to small to read... Or is there any way to set font size for the front screen app icons?
