How to Customize Navigation Bar on Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus/Ultra

The Galaxy S22 goes far beyond wallpaper, Edge Panels, and screen timeout when it comes to customization. One of these features is the ability to change and customize the navigation bar and gestures on the smartphone. The Navigation bar is the bottom-of-the-screen menu that serves as the foundation for navigating your device. You can change the layout and order of the buttons, or even remove them entirely and navigate your device using gestures instead. The steps below will show you how.
