How to move apps on a Samsung Galaxy S10

Moving, arranging, and managing app icons all starts with a single gesture: Tap and hold the app for about a second. But what you do next depends on how you want to interact with the app.

Place an app on the homescreen

Tap and hold an app on the Apps screen. If you keep your finger on the icon, after a moment it’ll appear on the homescreen for fast and easy access. 

The app hasn’t really “moved” — a copy of the app is now on the Home screen, but you can still find the app where it used to be on the Apps screen as well. 

If you do this to an app that’s already on the homescreen, it’ll simply open the app icon menu.

Move an app on the App or Home screen 

Tap and hold an app, but the moment that it starts to wiggle, move it by dragging your finger away. You can position the app icon anywhere on the page. 

If you drop it on top of another icon, you’ll create a folder that contains both icons. You can then drag and drop additional apps into that folder as well.

See the app icon menu 

Tap and hold an app, but the moment it starts to wiggle, release it. You’ll see a pop-up menu appear, with options to add it to the homescreen, uninstall the app (if it can be uninstalled), and more.
