Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: How to Enable Icon Backgrounds Feature in Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

By default, your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge displays icons only on the home screen and apps screen. But, if you have updated your phone to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, you can turn on the icon backgrounds feature to make those icons become more stand out by displaying them with shaded background.

How to enable the icon backgrounds feature?
You can turn this feature on by using the following steps:
  1. On any screen, swipe down the top of the screen to open up the notification panel and then tap to go to the settings menu.
  2. Scroll down the screen until you find Display and then tap it.
  3. Tap Icon backgrounds.
  4. Select Icons with backgrounds to have your phone displays icons with shaded background to make them stand out on the home screen and apps screen and then tap Done button to save the changes.
  5. You can press the Home key to return to the home screen and see the changes.
