    Okay folks,

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 but had the same problem with my Note 10-. The problem is when I go to share something, and the sharing menu comes up.

    I can pin apps to the top of the menu, which I've done: above the apps, though, are four recipients who are, I imagine, supposed to be the people with whom I share things the most.

    I haven't talked with these people in YEARS! I can't unpin them; I can't delete them; I can't do much except stare at them and not share things! So how do I get rid of them & replace them with contacts I actually contact a lot?

    While I would like for commonly used contacts to show up, apparently it's all or nothing. So I picked nothing.

    Settings -- Advanced features -- show contacts when sharing content

    Turn that sucker OFF!

    My Note 10 and now my S21 work in the same fashion. I think it must be Sammy's idea of handy.
    To access the contact list (if the recipient isn't in the current list) simply tick the app that you intend to share with. It will then bring a box to access all contacts. Start typing the contact name and it will complete the contact for you. Being as I primarily share via text and with only a few recipients, they are usually in the last used list. The suggested list is updated with each new send with the last accessed dropping from the list. I only assume your Z Fold 3 behaves the same.
