  4. 4
    The grid size is currently three horizontal lines with three applications in each line
    .
    We can change that to four applications in one horizontal line. The application icons are currently quite spaced out. This can be useful with more space between the individual icons, but we also have to scroll down more to see all of the apps.

  5. 5
    Press down on the word "Apps" at the top left corner of the screen
    .
    This brings up three options. It does not matter which one of these options is active because they all have the same grid setting.

  6. 6
    We need to press the icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen
    .
    There are three white dots in a vertical line. Pressing down on that will bring up a menu of options.

  7. 7
    We want to tap on the bottom option where it says "Grid size"
    .
    This will bring up the two "Grid size" options.

  8. 8
    The top option, "3 x 4" has a blue circle
    .
    This means that option is highlighted and is the current option we are using.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    We have another option, "4 x 5"
    .
    That circle is empty.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    If we press down on that circle across from "4 x 5", it will immediately change the grid size and take us out of that option
    .

  11. 11
    Now, it shows four applications in a horizontal line
    .
    There are also five lines, so we don't have to scroll down as far to see all of the apps. However, they are closer together, and this may cause problems for some people.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    To change the grid size back, press the three white dots in a vertical line again at the top right corner of the screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Then press "Grid size", and change back to the "3 x 4" grid
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
