    The home bar is supposed to disappear on galaxy s8 plus when playing games, right? However, that's not the case with me with some games I have. They stay on the screen for the whole session and the game 'tools' they have on the top and bottom of the home bar (recorder, screenshot, etc.) make it very annoying as I constantly accidentally press them when playing games. Please help.

    Before installing any games or apps into your device. It would be highly advised to view those apps or games permissions. Some can make calls, some can change your device display settings, so its always good practice to read these permissions.

    The commands you’ll need are:



    To only hide the status bar:



    adb shell settings put global policy_control immersive.status=*



    To only hide the navigation bar:



    adb shell settings put global policy_control immersive.navigation=*



    To hide both status and nav bar:



    adb shell settings put global policy_control immersive.full=*



    Return things to normal:



    adb shell settings put global policy_control null*

    so if I run those commands, will the navigation bar completely disappear even when I  don't have those  games open? Or will it just fix the problem of the navigation bar not disappearing in some Games?

    • Your device is plugged into your computer
    • You have USB Debugging enabled under Developer Options (Note: This may be listed as ADB Debugging on some ROM's)
    • You have installed the necessary drivers and your computer is recognizing your device
    1. Download the Minimal ADB and Fastboot setup.exe from here
    2. Follow the Installers instructions and select where you would like to install Minimal ADB and Fastboot too (For simplicity I choose to install it to the Desktop)
    3. After you have chosen where to install Minimal ADB and Fastboot too select whether you would like to create a Start Menu Folder or not for the instalation
    4. Once you have chosen where to install it to and if you want to create a Start Menu Folder select the install option
    5. After the Installation Wizard has completed you can select to start Minimal ADB and Fastboot
    6. You can also start Minimal ADB and Fastboot by navigating to the Start Menu Folder you choose to create during installation or the desktop shortcut you choose to create and selecting Minimal ADB and Fastboot
    7. You should now see a command window open, with the command window open you can now issue ADB and Fastboot commands to your device
