The standard navigation bar along the bottom of your Samsung Galaxy phone or tablet gives you quick access to buttons that let you see your open apps, return to the home screen, or go back. However, if you’d rather have a clean looking screen than quick access to that functionality, it’s possible to hide the Samsung Galaxy navigation bar. It’s important to note that after you hide the navigation bar you’ll still have access to those buttons along the bottom of the screen, but you’ll have to swipe up over where they were located to activate them.
Some of the images associated with the steps are included inline below. All images associated with these steps can be seen in the embedded YouTube video.

Steps to Hide Samsung Galaxy Navigation Bar
- Swipe up from the bottom of your Samsung phone or tablet to open the Apps screen, and then tap “Settings.” The Settings screen is displayed.
- Tap “Display” in this menu, and then tap “Navigation Bar” in the Display menu. The Navigation Bar screen is shown.
- Tap to select “Full Screen Gestures.” The navigation bar will be removed from your screen, and will no longer be displayed going forward. Instead you’ll see a thin line where each button used to be. You can swipe up over these lines to activate the functionality associated with those buttons.
