How to Reset Samsung Keyboard

The best way to get your Samsung Keyboard back to normal is to reset its settings using the native feature. Doing so will completely reset all the keyboard settings, such as size, theme, mode, etc. You will have to have to change the required settings per your preferences after resetting it.

To reset your Samsung Keyboard, follow these steps:

1. Open Settings on your Samsung Galaxy phone.

2. Go to “General management,” and tap on Samsung Keyboard settings.

If you don’t find the Samsung Keyboard settings via the above steps, go to “Settings -> General Management -> Language and input -> On-screen keyboard -> Samsung Keyboard.” Alternatively, open the Samsung Keyboard while using any app, then tap on the Settings icon on the keyboard to go to its settings.

If you know the settings you want to return to, you don’t need to reset all the settings. Reset each setting individually. For instance, you can reset the size, themes, etc., and get the default keyboard back.

How to Reset Keyboard Size

Open the Samsung Keyboard settings as shown above. Tap on “Size and transparency.” On the next screen, tap on the Reset button.
