    I just got this Note 9. Previously, I had an iPhone 6 and before that a Note 4. So I'm just learning this thing. I've installed a chess app, and I wanted to play it with the stylus. So I turn on the chess app and then pull out the stylus, but it automatically pops up some program for the stylus. It has a bunch of choices like "smart select", "screen write", "penup", and others. I'm sure I'll learn what that stuff is at some point, but right now I just want to play the chess game with the stylus. I don't see any way to take this stylus program off the screen. Anyone know?

    settings/ advanced features/S Pen/When S Pen is removed --

    from there you have 3 choices: DO nothing, Create Note, Open Air command.

    im using a note 10+ but should be similar on the note 9.

    you probably have "open air command" as the setting. change it do Do nothing. you still get a stylus icon but its not big to cause any issues.

    I recommend reading the user manual since you are coming from an Iphone-- two totally different platforms. you have a learning curve with the note so take some time to read the manual and watch some tips and tricks videos on youtube.
