Android Tips and Tricks You Should Know
If you have just purchased a phone with Android, or you bought it, but you only know how to answer the call, read today's article. It will describe some of the tips and tricks on working with Android, which will help you get to know more about your phone and get rid of some troubles. But you must understand that in different phones and versions of Android - everything may look a little different, so if something goes wrong, write your phone model in the comments and I will try to help.

Screenshot (screenshot):

You've probably heard "take a screenshot" - a screenshot, but not everyone knows that you can take pictures on your phone. No one knows at what point in life this opportunity may be useful to you, but it is worth a try. It's pretty simple. In most Andoid phones, in order to take a screen shot, you need to press the Power and Sound Down buttons simultaneously. And if you press them at the same time, a screen shot will appear and write that it is being saved, after which you will find a picture in the gallery. In some other Android devices, you need to press Home (main menu) and Power at the same time to take a picture.

If you have an old Android and none of the key combinations work, it is recommended to use the search and find a way for your phone, or use additional software.

Disable automatic update of applications:

Yes, it's good when Android is worried about new versions of programs and automatically updates them when you connect to the Internet. But, what to do if you have limited traffic, you pay for each MB of information, what to do if you do not want some applications to be updated?

You can disable automatic updating of programs in the play market:

1. Go to the Play Market - three lines at the top left

2. Settings

3. Choose "Auto Update Apps"




4. Put a tick "never"


Or you can make the applications update only when the phone is connected to Wi Fi:

We repeat 1 to 3 points and in the 4th set "Only via Wi Fi".

How to make sure that the shortcuts do not appear on the desktop when installing the application:

To prevent each application from putting a shortcut to the workspace - just go to the Play Market settings, as in the previous question, and uncheck the "Add icons" field!


Default application changes:

The first time when you open a file or application, you are offered options with which program to open the file. And at the bottom you can put a tick "use the default for this action"


If you select an application and the check mark will be displayed, then all the following times this file will be opened by this application. But what if you put another application and want to open this file with it, or did you mistakenly choose the wrong application?

So that the application does not open the file by default:

1. Go to Settings


2. Applications


3. Find in the list the application that opens this file by default.


4. Click "Delete default settings"


After these steps, you can re-select the program to open the default files.



Creating folders on your desktop:

If on your Android device many applications are on the desktop, and you do not want to delete them, then you can group them into folders.

1. Click and hold on a shortcut on the desktop, drag it to another shortcut.

How to disable autocorrection:

Every Android device has text auto-correcting, that is, you enter text with an error and, in theory, the word changes to the correct one. In principle, a good function, but knowing the number of surzhikov, and the desire to specifically distort some word - all this may cause the need to disable this function. In some phones, it is disabled by default, and vice versa, you must enable auto-correcting text:

1. Go to Settings => Language and Keyboard


2. Near the keyboard you are using, press the wheel (settings)


3. Open the Auto Fix and select the one you need: whether to enable, or disable ...


Set a limit on data transfer:

If your operator allocates a limited amount of traffic per day, you can set a limit on your phone so that when using a certain milestone the Internet is turned off. Agree more conveniently than to constantly check through a combination of numbers, how much MB is left.

1. Go to Settings => Networks => Mobile Data


2. Put a tick in the "Limit  transfer" field
