How to change the default apps on your Samsung Galaxy S20

Chances are that you have several apps designed to do the same thing. For instance, you may have two or even three browser apps, a few messaging apps, etc. Have you been wondering if there is an option to change the default app and set the one you want? The answer is yes. The whole process is straightforward and doesn’t require too much effort.

Here's how to change the default apps on your Samsung Galaxy S20:

  • Navigate to Settings
  • Tap Apps

  • Tap the menu button in the top-right corner of the screen
  • Now tap Default apps

You will see the apps that have been set as default for the browser, messaging, home screen, and calling. Tap on each option and select the app you want as the default. Once you do this, the app you have set will open as the main one for a particular task. For instance, someone sends you a link you want to open, and when you tap on the link, it will open in the browser app you have set as a default one.

If you change your mind later or install a similar app (for instance, a new browser app) and want to set it as a default, follow the steps we have listed above and make the changes you want.
