    I just started having the same problem. If I go to Settings > NFC and Payments and click on it it says unfortunately settings has stopped.

    If I reboot my phone it goes away for awhile, then it comes back. How do I stop this if the link that is posted in the previous post doesn't work?
    Thank you.

    Only other thing I found was to go to Settings - Application- All and locate the NFC app and Force Stop, Clear Cache, Clear Data then reboot.

    Can somebody please tell me how to bookmark something, how to get to those bookmarks, and then how to create them as a shortcut to a homescreen?
    Thank you.

    Not sure about hidden apps, was it something hidden by you or a System App you cannot access?
    If you want to book mark a site in a web browser like Chrome, open the three vertical dot menu in upper right corner and tap the star.
    There is a Add to Home screen option in the menu also.

    There's 1 factory bloat and 2 apps that I dl'ed. I hid these 3 for some reason and want to unhide them now.
    Thank you, and thank you for setting me straight on the bookmarks as well.

    If you deleted them, there gone and you would have to find a way to download them again.
    If disabled by a app like Package Disabler Pro,you could re enable them there.
    I'm not familiar with ezdisabler but it should work the same way.

    They aren't gone. There is a "hide" icon that I can click on to get to the apps. It's just one extra click to get to them, so not a big deal. I just assumed if you hide something you should be able to unhide it.
    Thank you so much.

    Well, I thought I would be able to figure this out per your instructions. But after the M update, Samsung in all their infinite wisdom, at least on the S6, did away with any menu key (no hard button. It used to be a floating onscreen icon) so I haven't a clue how to add a bookmark to a homescreen.
    When I talked to these bastards (Samsung, which I will never own again after what they did to this piece of shit phone, just like it's unrootable also), they said just don't use apps that require a menu key (including Tapatalk, which is why none of my postings are in the right forum topics because I have no "new topic" option w/o a menu button so I just randomly post my questions anywhere).
    I guess that means I'm not supposed to use bookmarks either.
    What the f*** do I expect from a $1200 phone anyway, I guess.

    I guess this belongs in the rant thread...
