The keypad of your Samsung Galaxy S9 is normally extended right to left, that’s the standard size that you were probably used to. At some point, however, you might notice that it became significantly smaller and shifted towards the left or the right of the screen. Any change is unpleasant when you haven’t asked for it, and probably so is this one.
Of course, you don’t know that you have activated, by mistake, the so-called one-handed input method. But we’re here to confirm it with you and, most importantly, to show you how to make all your pads get back to the right dimensions. We say all the pads because the keypad isn’t the only one that got smaller. Soon enough, you’ll see that the option buttons, the unlock pattern from the lock screen, and even the calculator or the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 Plus keyboard got smaller. Here’s how to put an end to all that with steps below.
How To Fix Numeric Keypad Small On Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus:
- Go to the Start Screen, at the Settings section;
- Select the Extended functions;
- Tap on One-handed operation;
- Tap on One-handed input;
- Use the control bar next to the One-handed input and turn it off;
- Leave the settings and check the changes.
By now, the number keypad should have turned back in its large form. Working on your Samsung Galaxy S9 will be just like you got used to!
