Samsung Dex for Windows and Mac computer. how to download and use

Previously, the site has already published an article on using Samsung Dex by connecting a Samsung Galaxy Note or Galaxy S smartphone to a monitor or computer with a cable or using a Dex Station or Dex Pad. Now another opportunity has appeared. Samsung Dex for PC Windows 10, 7 and Mac OS: a smartphone is connected with a USB cable to a computer or laptop, and as a result, Samsung Dex functions are available in a window (or full screen) in an already running OS. It is this use case that will be discussed below.

The official page informs about the compatibility of the Samsung Dex version for PC with devices of the Galaxy Note 10, S10 and others from the same generation, however, everything works fine for me with the Galaxy Note 9 with Android 10, I suppose that this is also true for the S9 line.

Where to download Samsung Dex for Windows or Mac OS

The software part required for Samsung Dex to work on a computer is available on the official website (or you can go to, redirection to the desired page will happen automatically).

The installation of the program should not cause any problems and does not contain any nuances, except that during the installation you will need to disconnect your smartphone from the computer if it is connected.

After installation, you will receive a message stating that to run Samsung Dex you need to connect your phone to your computer using USB, I would recommend using USB 3.0.

Connect and use Samsung Dex on a computer or laptop

Connecting your phone to your computer to use Samsung Dex is very simple:

  • Connect your phone with a USB cable. The Samsung Dex app on your computer must be running.
  • If the request “Start broadcasting in Samsung Dex” appears on the smartphone screen, click “Start”. If there is no such request, go to the notification area and enable the “File Transfer” mode for USB connection.
  • Done: as a result, you will see the Samsung Dex window with the same capabilities as when you connect your phone to a separate monitor or TV.

The application settings contain only two items: automatic launch when the phone is connected to the computer and the blinking icon when receiving notifications on the phone. both are enabled by default. If the icon starts flashing constantly, even without notifications, I recommend disabling the second function.

In terms of using Samsung Dex, no differences from the “regular” version via the docking station were noticed, everything works exactly the same. From the nuances:

  • The mode of operation in the window and full-screen mode are supported (launched by the “expand” button). To exit full screen mode, move your mouse pointer to the top center of the screen.
  • Your phone’s notifications only appear “inside” the Dex window, not in the host operating system’s notifications. If you’d like to receive them in the notification center, take a look at the standard Your Phone app in Windows 10. it works very well with Samsung smartphones.
  • The image quality (which is especially noticeable on a full screen) is worse than when connected directly to the monitor: the USB signal is transmitted compressed. Sound is output from the computer speakers (can be changed to output through the phone speakers in the sound settings in the Samsung Dex taskbar).
  • You can copy files from your computer to your phone by simply dragging the Samsung Dex window to the desktop, they are saved in the Downloads folder. Sometimes the transfer fails (in my case, the message about the wrong file type). I did not find ways to copy from the phone to the computer (except for accessing the phone memory through the Computer Explorer).
  • Switching the keyboard to Russian or back to English is performed by the AltShift key combination (for Dex in Windows). over, the switching works properly when the Samsung keyboard is set by default in the Android settings, in any case, I did not succeed in switching the keyboard language from Gboard to Samsung Dex.

As a result: everything is working properly and, I think, it will be useful for someone: using mobile applications from a computer in this way, especially if it is associated with typing, can be very convenient. Although, subjectively, it is much more impressive to use a smartphone as a computer without the mediation of the latter.

Samsung finally adds a notification light to the Galaxy S10, but that’s not how it works

Samsung has made some really thin bezels around the display in its latest flagships. And if the side frames were thin enough before, then the presence of a front camera did not allow the upper one to be thin, and then Samsung decided to cut a hole for the selfie module right in the display. Such a screen looks unrealistically cool, but due to the fact that it occupies almost the entire area of ​​the front surface of the smartphone, all the sensors and sensors had to be installed under the screen, and the notification LED indicator, even worse, had to be completely removed.

Of course, the first thing that comes to mind when looking at the screens of the new Galaxy S10 is a simple idea. to use the hole in the display, and make it, in a sense, a notification indicator, making the pixels around it light up with some contrasting color if necessary. And Samsung seems to have figured it out before that too, and therefore the pixels around the front camera area light up when, for example, you unlock the smartphone using the face recognition function or do a few other actions. Unfortunately, it is for notifications that no light indication is provided, and therefore, it is now impossible to find out about missed calls and messages, as in the old fashioned way.

We hoped Samsung could fix this with an update, while in the meantime we could use the Holey Light or ARC Lighting apps from Google Play as a temporary solution for visual notifications. There is also an application that allows you to use the area around the hole for the camera to display the battery charge, and we, by the way, talked about it in a separate material, where it is described how it works, and there is also a download link.

The hope that Samsung will correct this misunderstanding and give us the ability to use visual light indicators, we had until now, that is, until the moment Samsung updated its experimental Good Lock app, adding the EdgeLighting plugin to it, which was supposed to bring tidy up the available EdgeLighting options. Chief among the new features is a simulated notification light, which animates an OLED display around a hole in the Galaxy S10e, S10 or S10 display.

While it’s nice to know that we now have the official ability to use an animated ring of light around the camera for notifications, it turns out that Samsung’s own plugin suffers from the same disease as third-party apps. A new plugin feature called “Eclipse” allows you to select the color of the display illumination around the camera opening, as well as select the interval for the pulsation.

The new feature, however, does not work in most situations when the screen is off, which greatly diminishes its usefulness. When the screen is off, you can still see a multicolored pulsating ring around the camera, but only for incoming calls or a few stock applications, among which there are no popular chats and social media applications that are used by the vast majority. Bummer. We still very much hope that Samsung will fix this with updates as soon as possible.

How to change Android notification sound for different apps

By default, notifications from different Android apps come with the same default sound. The exception is rare applications where developers have installed their own notification sound. This is not always convenient, and the ability to already determine the vibe by sound, whether it is Instagram, mail or SMS, can be useful.

This tutorial details how to set up different notification sounds for different applications on Android: first on new versions (8 Oreo and 9 Pie and Android 10), where this function is present in the system, then on Android 6 and 7, where this function is not provided by default. Also useful: How to change or put your ringtone on Android.

Note: the sound for all notifications can be changed in Settings. Sound. Notification ringtone, Settings. Sounds and vibration. Notification sounds or in similar paragraphs (depends on the specific phone, but is approximately the same everywhere). To add your own notification sounds to the list, just copy the ringtone files to the Notifications folder in the internal memory of your smartphone.

Change notification sound of individual Android 9 and 8 apps

The latest versions of Android have a built-in ability to set different notification sounds for different applications.

The setup is very simple. Further screenshots and paths in the settings are given for Samsung Galaxy Note with Android 9 Pie, but on a “clean” system all the necessary steps are almost exactly the same.

  • Go to Settings. Notifications.
  • At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see a list of apps that send notifications. If not all applications are displayed, click on the “View all” button.
  • Tap the app whose notification sound you want to change.
  • The screen will show the different types of notifications that this app can send. For example, in the screenshot below, we see the options for the Gmail app. If we need to change the sound of notifications for incoming mail to the specified mailbox, click on the item “Mail. With sound”.
  • In the “With sound” item, select the desired sound for the selected notification.

Similarly, you can change notification sounds for different applications and for different events in them, or, conversely, turn off such notifications.

Note that there are applications for which such settings are not available. Of those that I personally met. only Hangouts, i.e. there are not so many of them and they, as a rule, already use their own notification sounds instead of system ones.

How to change sounds of different notifications on Android 7 and 6

Previous versions of Android do not have a built-in feature to set different sounds for different notifications. However, this can be implemented using third party applications.

There are several applications available on the Play Store that have the following functions: Light Flow, NotifiCon, Notification Catch App. In my case (tested on pure Android 7 Nougat), the last application turned out to be the simplest and most efficient (in Russian, no root required, it works properly when the screen is locked).

Changing the notification sound for the application in the Notification Catch App looks like this (on the first use, you will have to give a lot of permissions so that the application can intercept system notifications):

  • Go to the item “Sound Profiles” and create your profile by clicking on the “Plus” button.
  • Enter the name of the profile, then click on the “Default” item and select the desired notification sound from the folder or from the installed ringtones.
  • Return to the previous screen, open the Applications tab, click Plus, select the application for which you want to change the notification sound and set the sound profile you created for it.

That’s all: in the same way, you can add sound profiles for other applications and, accordingly, change the sounds of their notifications. You can download the application from the Play Store:

If for some reason this application does not work for you, I recommend trying Light Flow. it allows you not only to change notification sounds for different applications, but also other parameters (for example, the color of the LED or the speed of its blinking). The only drawback is that not the entire interface is translated into Russian.

In these settings I have the sound I selected for the application, but the sound that I set for notifications is still triggered! This is how I reset the phone settings (Before that, everything was fine

Hello. In the application itself, we looked at the settings, in some there is a priority. For example, in a telegram so, it is important what exactly is selected for the sound of notifications.

I myself did not come across these devices, but now I looked. like only one sound for all notifications (in the notification sound settings), some applications in their own parameters (for example, messages) allow you to set a separate notification sound.

Hello. I can not remove the vibration response when the subscriber answers, I can not find the “sound profiles”. Already got not only me, but also the interlocutors. DOOGEE-X55 phone, Android 7.0. Help.

on Android 9, there are no such notification settings on the phone.
maybe yours is specific. on my no!

Hello, on Android 8.1 there is a signal to install applications. how to remove it? Every time, as applications begin to be updated en masse, these sounds got out in chorus and all at night. Phone Nobby A200.

What is this nonsense? “Previous versions of Android do not have a built-in feature to set different sounds for different notifications.”
On Android 5.0, I quietly installed different sounds on individual contacts and applications without any applications without any problems and without any root rights.
How is it that on 6-ke and higher there is no such possibility? I’m shocked. I wanted to set it up on another phone and couldn’t, it’s horror.

It also depends on the specific manufacturer, some “chips” they have even earlier than in pure Android or in Android of another manufacturer.

Hello. Good information, but for many users with Android 10 it is useless, because anytime you try to set your sound or melody through the explorer or by moving a file to a folder, the information “WRONG TYPE, CHOOSE AGAIN.” Appears. As I understand it, the Notification folder does not accept MP3 format. I managed to put an mp3 ringtone on a call in a roundabout way only in this way: select a contact, enter the contact data, select “change” and there it becomes possible to set a custom ringtone, go through the explorer or file manager to the folder where music or sounds in mp3 format is stored. and select the one you want. Only in this way, otherwise folders with notification sounds and ringtones will not be accepted. To find out in what audio format all the sounds and melodies are located there, then it was possible to convert it to a file in some editor to the desired format before transferring it to the folder. Tell me the solution. Do you know this format? Thank you in advance.

Do you really have mp3? Perfectly on Android 10, they are set as ringtones (and on a clean system, Nokia tested it on such as Samsung Galaxy). Why am I asking about “exactly mp3”. it just happens that some users simply change the file extension to the desired one (but then the format does not actually change).

Good day. I followed the instructions and everything worked out, but now two ringtones sound simultaneously in VK, the standard one and which I installed. How to fix? I have HONOR 9

To be honest, I don’t know for sure, the behavior is strange for me. But if you did it through a third-party application, and not in the phone settings, check what will happen if you just turn off notifications for VK in the settings (if possible).

Hello. How to change the sound for incoming email mail. Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 pro phone.

Hello. But what if, when changing the ringtone for a specific application, it opens a list of notification types, and the sound is involved in several?
Those. I open the Android settings, select the application on which I want to change the ringtone, and there are a dozen types of notifications, and half of them have sound. It is inconvenient to change it with your hands, especially if the application is not one, but several.

Hello. I will not give you a solution to “speed up the process”, I don’t know.

And if your device has been updated to OneUI 2.0 (Android 10), then you can also use low power mode.

Feature 1. Speed ​​up your Galaxy smartphone

There is no need to physically speed up the smartphone interface. Even on mid-budget devices, all system operations (switching between applications, returning to the desktop, opening the list of applications) work smoothly and very quickly, and there is nothing to say about flagships.

However, in the One UI (proprietary shell from Samsung), literally any action is accompanied by a small animation. And if we accelerated all these animations by 2 times, the smartphone would feel much faster.

This is exactly what we will do, starting with the most obvious point:

Feature 6. Diversify the lock screen

Tired of looking for a new lock screen wallpaper yourself all the time? Then entrust this task to your smartphone!

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 have a great feature called Animated Lock Screen (better known as Dynamic Lock Screen). You just select the topic you are interested in and each time you turn on the smartphone, it will automatically change the picture on the lock screen. over, the database of these pictures is updated every 2 weeks.!

  • Go to Smartphone Settings
  • Opening the Lock Screen
  • Find the item Animated lock screen and turn it on
  • Now we enter the Animated lock screen and select one of the proposed themes.

Now, every time you turn on the screen, we will see the best wallpapers hand-picked by Samsung:

But if this is not enough for you and you want something unusual, then you can install any video on the lock screen! Have you filmed your beloved pet on your smartphone camera and want to see this video right on the lock screen? Fine:

  • Go to the Gallery application
  • Select the desired video and open the menu in the upper right corner (three dots)
  • Click the menu item Set as wallpaper
  • If the video is too long, the smartphone will offer to automatically crop it for up to 15 seconds, after which it will set this video as the lock screen wallpaper

Feature 9. Sound indicator of missed notifications

The LED indicator for missed notifications is a very useful thing that, unfortunately, is missing on Samsung flagships.

You can, of course, use the AOD-display instead of this indicator (a special mode in which the time and missed notifications are constantly displayed on the off screen. editor’s note), but many do not like this solution.

Did you know that Samsung Galaxy smartphones have a sound indicator for missed notifications? It works on the same principle as the LED, only instead of a periodically flashing light, the smartphone will periodically emit a sound.

To configure this mode, do the following:

  • Open Smartphone Settings
  • Let’s go to the Accessibility item
  • Here we go to Advanced options
  • Turn on Notification Reminder
  • Now we click on the same item (Reminder about notifications) and set up the mode: what events to remind about (only missed calls and messages, or notifications from other applications), whether to use only a sound signal or also vibration, select the frequency of sound reminders

By the way, if you noticed, next to the notification reminder function, there is also an option to use the flash as an indicator of missed notifications.!

Feature 5. Attaching windows

Only a few Samsung smartphone users know about this feature.!

Imagine giving your smartphone to a child to watch a YouTube cartoon. However, there is a high probability that everything will not be limited to YouTube and it may accidentally open another application or do something very undesirable.

Or someone from your acquaintances asks for a phone to call / play a game / surf the Internet. Considering that a modern smartphone is the most personal device, which may contain data that is not intended for prying eyes, giving it to another person is not a good idea.
