SMKE10684, having the full screen all the time would be a bit problematic. I want you to be able to customize your display, so you can have things set the way you want. On the S9/S9+ the full-screen option is controlled by App. Some Apps are going to be set to be full screen or not. The decision for that is made by the App developer, who might need their app to run in full-screen mode for the best experience. It sounds like you know where to check the full-screen settings, but just in case you need it I'm going to share a link from Samsung with the details on what you can adjust for the display: http://spr.ly/6588De3Tp
Besides some specific apps, are there different places where you're finding the full-screen problematic?
