Your Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra automatically sorts the app drawer based on the order that the application is installed from the Google Play Store. Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to customize the grid so that apps are sorted in alphabetical order.

Open the app drawer by navigating to the Galaxy S20’s home screen and then swiping up from the bottom of the handset’s display.

Next, tap on the three-dot Menu icon located in the top-right corner of the interface within the search bar.

From the small menu that appears, select the “Sort” button.

The pop-up menu will now disappear and your Galaxy S20’s app drawer will automatically resort itself to show all installed applications in alphabetical order. Any folders that you have created or that come preinstalled by Samsung will be moved to the front of the list.
