Some might worry that the apps won’t work or have troubles. You don’t have to worry, because most of them are compatible with this Android software trick. That being said, some apps might ‘force’ you back to the full size screen, like when you activate the camera.
You can do so by following these simple steps. First, you go the “Settings”, and then pick the “Control”, and then you will find “One-Handed Operation”. There the option for “Use for All Screen” is available, and if you activate it you will be able to shrink the display. Oh, did I tell you that you can resize the window size too? Interesting, right?
