    How can I turn off the Auto-Update of apps & the system?

    Every time I go on wi-fi, the dang thing starts updating apps & the system. Then, I have to wait for it to finish before I get full use of my device (S8+).

    PERSON mentioned system too. That's located in developer mode area. And btw,no apps will update if one is denied updating . I tried to stop updates.It does what it wants.

    OP NEEDS TO GET PACKAGE DISABLER APP IN APP STORE TO DISABLE UNWANTED APPS TOO.

    I appreciate all the suggestions. Based upon them, I have gone to the App Store and turned off all updates so that I can manually update when I want. This should be what I need most, tho the system update is also desired to be done manually, when I know I won't be using it for a while.

    So, I looked through all the settings (Nougat, Android 7.0), and have not found anything that says "Developer Mode" like I did when I had my Galaxy S4 (that died, prompting this upgrade). It used to be in the "About Phone" page, IIRC, but is not there on this one. Where should I be looking to find it?

    WOW!!! They surely want to make it an OBVIOUS option!!!

    Hey, you mentioned the Package Disabler App. I presume that is the $1.49 cost Package Disabler Pro (Samsung)? This looks like it will allow me to disable the bloatware that I do not want (I do want the DirectTV stuff, because that is our TV provider). Good call. Will put that on my list of things to do.

    Not to worry, I usually delve cautiously. I've got a good bit of computer experience under my belt, so, the ONE thing I DO know is that I BARELY know ANYTHING! I appreciate you.

    You are saying that a notification used to give you a screenshot of something? Now it goes straight to the gallery where the screenshot is located? My notifications only give me banners - I believe I set that on my Notifications in Settings. Without looking at the phone, I would say there is probably a setting where you can pick the type of notification - screenshot or banner. It would seem that something changed the setting for pictures to open them in Gallery, which might have changed ALL the picture settings. There should be a setting in Apps for the Camera (maybe) to open photographs in Gallery.

    I am just making a SWAG, more WAG than S.

    Let me get off this computer, finish cleaning up from dinner, & I'll take a look at my phone.
