    My S5 with Lolipop had menu wrap-around -- where the last page of a menu would wrap around to the first page if I kept swiping the same direction -- but Marshmallow doesn't do that on my S7 (T-Mobile, if it matters). Does anyone know how to change this? This happens with the home screens and the app list.

    Touchwiz in either Lollipop or Marshmallow doesn't have wrap around functionality in the homescreens or app drawer. So were you using a different launcher like Nova on your S5? because that does have that option.

    How do I find out which launcher my S5 has? I didn't realize there were options. If you have to root to switch launchers, then I probably had the default, or perhaps T-Mobile chose one other than touchwiz.

    Your S5 if it was stock will have had TouchWiz on it as all Samsungs do.
    You would need to download a new Launcher like Nova to get the effect that you want

    No you don't have to root to use a launcher and i doubt t-mobile would have installed one. You must have done it and forgotten about it maybe? Check your apps, for Nova or Apex or i dunno there's loads of launchers available lol.

    Sweet! I installed Nova Premium and enabled the infinite scroll. Perfect. Also love the ability to hide apps (which was taken away in Marshmallow) and to customize gestures.

    Nice one :) You can also have an infinite scrolling multi page dock as well if you didn't know.

    I did see that, but I like the simplicity of a single dock with the option to have several screens of widgets/shortcuts. Nova gave me the flexibility to do it all. Thanks for the recommendation.
