    Steps to be taken for changing the docked icons on Samsung Android phone

    Even though there is a docked area on the screen of my Samsung Android phone, I rarely use some of the icons in that area. I need to change them with other icons as soon as possible. What should I do for that?

    The first step required is to launch the app drawer on your device. After that, locate the ‘Menu’ button and make a single press on it. You can then find ‘View type’ option from the pop-up menu. Tap on that option to bring up another menu with three options. Select the radio box next to ‘Customizable grid’ option with a single tap. Press the ‘Menu’ button again and tap the ‘Edit’ from pop-up menu. You can then drag the app icons into the dock bar using your fingers.
