Changing Your Keyboard

If you find it hard to type on the standard Galaxy Note 5 keyboard, or you just want to make it look better, you can install replacement keyboards. You can download free or purchase replacement keyboards from the Google Play Store. Most, if not all, keyboards come with their own installation wizard that walks you through adding and activating a keyboard, but if the one you installed does not have a wizard, or when you want to manually switch keyboards in the future, you need to use these steps.

  1. Pull down the notification bar and tap the Settings icon.

  2. Tap Language and Input.

  3. Tap Default keyboard.
  4. Tap Set Up Input Methods.

  5. Tap the on/off switch next to a keyboard you have previously installed from the Google Play Store (this example uses SwiftKey Keyboard) to make that keyboard available for use.
  6. Tap the back arrow to return to the previous screen.

  7. Tap Default Keyboard to change the default keyboard to the one you have just enabled.

  8. Tap the name of your new keyboard to select it to be the default.

  9. Tap the new keyboard name to make changes, including customizing it. Sometimes the keyboard’s customization wizard launches when you tap the keyboard name.
  10. Tap the back arrow to save your changes.
