How to change the app icons on the Samsung Galaxy S23
Tap and hold on an empty spot on your Home screen to access the Home screen settings menu.
From the settings menu, tap the Themes icon at the bottom of the display.
You’ll then be taken to Samsung’s Galaxy Themes Store where you can browse wallpapers, themes, ringtones and replacement app icons. To make your search easier, tap Icons and browse from the list of free and paid icon packs until you find one you like.
Once you’ve found an icon pack you’d like to use, tap it and tap the big blue Download button to install the icons on your phone.
Once your icon pack has been downloaded – this should take no more than a few seconds – you’ll be able to use them in place of Samsung’s default app icons. Simply tap Apply to save your changes.
Yes. From the Galaxy Themes Store tap Menu > My Stuff > Icons and select the Default icon pack.
The Galaxy S23 doesn’t ship with any additional icon packs pre-installed, but if you want to browse through the selection you’ve downloaded, head to Menu > My Stuff > Icons.
