Hey, everybody, I am here today to show you how to use a Samsung Galaxy Tab eight. This will be a full and complete tutorial. So let’s get right into the article, I’ll be going over the various functions of the tablet, and how to use its basic features, I’m going to try and keep it very basic and simple. So this article should be pretty short and pretty straightforward. Let’s get right into the article.
power or sleep button:
If you look on the side, here, we have these three buttons. This one on the top here alone is the power or sleep button. Okay, it basically turns the device on and off and then allows you to go out of standby mode and into standby mode. And then we have these two buttons here, it looks like one but there’s actually two, it’s a toggle, which would be your volume up and your volume down. Very simple and straightforward.
how to charge the device
The next thing that I want to go over is how to charge the device. If you take a look at the bottom of the device right over here, there is a little charging port, you’re gonna take one end of your charging cable that came with the device, plug it into that charging port, and then you’re going to take the other end and you’re gonna plug it into a wall outlet, and it will charge and it will tell you how much what the charges and when it’s fully charged.
So it’s pretty simple and straightforward. It’s really no different than charging any other wired device.
how to unlock the device: Samsung Galaxy Tab A8
The next thing is how to unlock the device. Well, when you set it up, you probably set a pattern or a passcode. Okay. And if you didn’t, you can still obviously unlock the device. So if you don’t have a pattern or passcode, you’re just going to press the button.
And then you’re going to swipe up from this screen right here. If you do have a pattern or password, you’re going to go ahead and enter it just like that. And then the device is unlocked. So that’s how to unlock it, and start to use it. And once again, if you don’t have a pattern or passcode, then you’re just gonna have to swipe up from that screen, you’re not going to enter anything in Okay,
how to get to the apps section?
now how to get to the apps section? So if you take a look right here, this is sort of your home screen, okay? And it only shows some of your apps, I can swipe around and only show some of the apps. But if I want to see all of the apps, if I want to see a big list of all of my apps from the home screen, you just swipe up just like that. And then it shows all of your apps. And you can see that there are even apps within folders. So right here is a folder, if I click that, it opens up the folder.
And now I can select an app within the folder. If you want to exit out of the folder, you just click away just like that.
how to get to the app screen?
Okay, so now we know how to get to the app screen. Now if you take a look down here, there are these three sorts of digital buttons. There are no actual physical buttons. But there are these three digital buttons. Okay, I’m gonna swipe back down.
So you can go into the apps, and then a lot of the apps back to the home screen. So see your apps, make them disappear. Very simple. Okay. So once again, swipe up to see them swipe down to see them go away, or disappear, I should say. Now these three buttons down here serve different functions, they’re really easy to understand, though, the one in the middle. And it looks like the sort of rounded square is basically your home button.
So it brings you back home every time you’re doing something. So let’s say I open this up, and actually scroll back down.
the clock app:
Let’s go on to the clock app. Okay, so you can see I’m in the clock app, if I want to go back home, I push that middle, rounded square button. Okay, wherever you go, you can just push that button to bring it back to segment the gallery. If I want to go back, I just push this middle button right there.
And there are some pictures that I took some screenshots that I took just not too long ago. So if I go into once again, we’ll go into the gallery, let’s say there are some screenshots that I took before the home screen and of the clock screen, and I just pushed that middle one right there to go back to the home screen. So takes you back home. Okay.
Now the other button is this button right here, which is the backward arrow, which is basically your back button. So wherever you are, it will take you back to the last step. If I go into the clock, and I push back, it’ll take me back to where I was last, which is the home screen. Okay, let’s see, I go into settings, okay. And then I want to go into something within the settings. Let’s say I go into general management.
But I want to go back to the screen before I just click the back button, it takes me back to the screen before and the back button once again takes me back to the home screen. Very simple and straightforward, okay, to the app screen and the home screen. So it literally just takes you back to the last step. It’s really, really straightforward. Now last but not least on the bottom, there is this little button that has these three lines on it going vertically,
apps that are running:
that one is basically all of the apps that are running. So if I clicked on it right there, it shows me all of the apps that are currently running. And if I wanted to enter into one of those apps, I could click on the app itself, as you can see right there, I can go back home, okay? And then if I click this again, it shows the apps that are running, okay, if I want to close an app, swipe it up just like that, and it closes it and now if I click this, you can see no recently used apps there are no apps that are currently recently used are running.
If I open one up again, let’s say open up the clock, and I go back home. Now, if I go to this one, it shows that the clock app is running, I can swipe it up to get rid of it, just like that, and close it down.
if you want your notification panel:
Okay, very simple. The next thing is, if you want your notification panel, you just from the top of the screen, you just drag down like this, and you get all of your notifications, I’m going to bring it back up, because I don’t know what notifications are there. And I don’t want to show anything. But essentially, you just drag down from the top of the screen, continue dragging down and you have your notification panel and sort of your like control center. So it kind of shows all the controls, and what’s going on with the actual device. Okay.
how to sort of use an app?
Next, the next thing I want to show you so I have a list on the side here that I’m kind of following along with. So the next thing that I want to show you is how to sort of use an app. So you can click on an app icon to enter into that app. So I can click on that, and enter it into it.
And then you can go ahead and do whatever you want to do with it. So now I’m in the app, I can set the alarm on, okay, or I can turn it off, right, so you can do whatever you need to do within the app. Very simple and straightforward. Now we’re gonna go back to the home screen, I’m gonna go ahead and close that app just to recap what we’ve gone over.
How do people download new games and new apps to use?
And the last thing that I wanted to go over is sort of how to download games and how to download apps.
That’s probably one of the most asked questions. How do people download new games and new apps to use? Well, we see that icon right there that says Play Store, you can go into the Play Store. And you can download both, you know, free apps, paid apps, and then three apps that have paid options within them. We all within the Play Store. So if you want to get any of the apps that you heard of or that you like or that you’re interested in, go into the Play Store, and you can check them out there. That’s it. That is literally how to use a Samsung Galaxy Tab A full tutorial.
