Regardless of the personal layer made up of individual product devices, Android has a lot tasks that many users overlook, either because they do not know it exists, or because they have never used it.
With all those tricks and tools provided by the Google operating system, let's stop now & # 39; Adjustable Screen & # 39; or & # 39; Adjustable Screen & # 39; (Screen pinning, in English), is a very useful solution if you have to leave someone on your phone with the app open and want no further access.
What is it designed for and what is the & # 39; Fix Screen & # 39;
This feature, which we first saw on Android Lollipop and came back with Andorid 9 Pie, Unique & # 39; in guest mode & # 39; which also works to protect the person you leave your phone with and see more than you want.
Although it is called the & # 39; Fix Screen & # 39; (at least, for pure Android), what it really does for you "fix" the previous program
Therefore It may be helpful if, for example, we borrow a phone from someone and we don't want you to access our photo gallery, install messaging apps, see our social networks … In short, so we don't become "gossipy". It also works when we leave a baby's cell phone, for example, to watch a video.
How can you work to make & # 39; screen adjust & # 39; on pure Android
Although this task is less obvious (as with most Android features), the process of launching it is quite simple. The first thing to do is enable it, and for that, in the case of pure Android, just install: Settings> Security & Location> Advanced> Adjust screen.
It is highly recommended that you choose & # 39; Lock the performance lock & # 39; so that, if someone makes an application set (something, in a simple, simple way), you must enter a normal password or blocking method before you can continue using the mobile phone.
If you have enabled the task, the next step is to launch it, and with that, you must install the latest applications by pressing the Android square button and by tapping on the icon of the app you want to place (in the upper middle part of the content view).
Among the options, there will be & # 39; Fix & # 39; accompanied by pushpin; click on it and, from that moment, that app will be redirected. To work again, you'll need to press the back buttons and the latest apps at the same time, and enter your unlock mode.
How it works in other layers
Other than a layer that doesn't have this option, like MIUI (from Xiaomi), most allow you to use this functionality by following a process very similar to the one we described pure Android; simply, as we shall now see, the word is different.
For Huawei phones, with EMUI, the steps to do it are powerful Settings> Security & Privacy> Other settings> Focused screen. As we can see in the screenshots, EMUI also allows us to & # 39; Request a password lock screen to cancel & # 39 ;, come on, what is a pure Android that said & # 39; Lock the power switch & # 39;
The process of setting up the app is very similar, though simple: just install the latest apps again touch on pushpin that comes from the middle and the bottom. Of course, in this case, you have to press and hold the backpace key or & # 39; Back & # 39; to work again.
When we go now to Samsung and its One UI, we see that the function is within Biometric and Security settings> Other security settings and that, in this case, It's called & # 39; Fix windows & # 39;. It also allows us to establish if we want to request a PIN before executing it.
To use it, it's enough, and, to open the latest apps, click the icon for one of the apps again select & # 39; add this request & # 39;. To make it work again, as was the case with pure Android, you have to press the backscreen buttons and recent apps at the same time.
As we have seen, the process of leaving a pre-configured application is called a & # 39; fix screen & # 39; or & # 39; Windows repair & # 39 ;, The same is true for all convective layers. It is not something we will use often, it is obvious, but it is not wrong to know the task in case we have to use it at a particular time.
