If you just got a new Galaxy Note 8, there are a lot of more things you can do with your new enhanced S Pen. With that in mind, we have created a list of the best tips and tricks that help you master your stylus. Before we get started, make sure you now have a modern version of software update on your device.

  1. S-Pen Air Command

The S-Pen Air command is the gathering place for all of your S Pen features, giving you a glimpse of what you can do with your stylus. You can easily access the Air command center by taking out the S Pen.

If you need help, follow our steps below.

Step one: First off, hit the Air Command icon on the right side of the screen and then tap the Settings icon

Step two: Under the Removal section and then tap When the S Pen is removed

Step three: Now just simply select Open Air Command. Once you do that, the Air Command will be automatically open every time you take out the S Pen.
