A few days ago several settings in my Galaxy A6 android 10 phone mysteriously increased, presumably due to some sort of update by Samsung. One I cannot reverse is that all icons on the Home page are very large such that there are only 12 to a page and I cannot find how to reduce their size to what they were before. I have hunted through all Settings but cannot find a solution. Any ideas?

Check your ACCESSIBILITY settings, in case you accidentally activated something that was designed to assist visually-impaired people. There is also a grid setting somewhere, that allows you to specify the number of icons to display on your screen (4 x 4, 5 x 5, etc). Most obvious place to find that particular setting would be under DISPLAY, I guess.

You can decrease your apps size by going into the home screen settings and try I different grid size.

Sorry for the late reply... goto HOME SCREEN SETTINGS. Once there, have a look, and see if APPS SCREEN GRID is there. I think this may solve your issue. 😊

Thanks Steven and Keith but I have now spoken to a Samsung agent. She advised me that the Home page had updated software added and that the new version fixed the icon size at the bigger size. Either the A6 does not have software that can adjust the grid size or else the Settings ha
