Speed Up Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus with Home Screen Shortcuts

Samsung, the Korean smartphone giant, is known for creating fast and flawless devices. But even the latest Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus models aren’t perfect, as all smartphones have their flaws. In this article, I’ll focus on the speed performance of these flagship phones, specifically accessing specific internet pages. I’m not talking about page load speed, though. Instead, I’ll show you the fastest way to access your favorite pages on your smartphone.

Typically, when you want to go to a specific URL, you might open the built-in Samsung app, or use a third-party app like Google Chrome or Firefox. Then, you’d type the address into the bar. This is the usual process for most people. But what if I told you there’s a way to speed it up using bookmarks?

Now, you might be thinking, “Isn’t that just a regular bookmark on a PC? It doesn’t do much.” But hear me out. With your Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus, you can take it a step further. You can move these bookmarks to your Home screen, reducing the number of steps you need to take.

By using a shortcut icon on your Home screen that acts as a bookmark for your favorite webpage, you can skip the steps of manually launching the internet browser and typing the URL into the address bar.

Many phones already have this feature, available through a special Options menu. Holding down on the Home screen would bring up this menu, and you should see an option called “Add to Home screen.” By pressing it, you can add a bookmark to your Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus Home screen, from your saved bookmarks in the phone’s internet browser apps.

However, with Samsung’s latest flagship phones, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, there’s an even easier method. Let’s start with the steps to do it using Samsung’s stock web browser app known as the Internet. The process is simple and once you learn it, you’ll be able to do it with other internet browsing apps without needing to learn a new method. So, let’s get started.

Steps to Create a Shortcut Icon on your Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus

  1. Go to your smartphone’s Home screen
  2. Open the Samsung stock Internet browser
  3. Type the web address in the address bar
  4. Tap the three-point symbol in the top right corner of the app
  5. Choose the “Add shortcut to Home screen” option from the context menu

After following these steps, you’ll see a new icon on your Home screen. Tap it and it will automatically take you to your favorite webpage with just one click! You can add as many bookmarks as you want to your Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus Home screen.

If you prefer using other internet browsing apps like Google Chrome or Opera, don’t worry. The steps are similar for all browsers, and it won’t take you many extra steps to set it up.

So, say goodbye to unnecessary steps and hello to a faster browsing experience on your Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus!
