How to sort apps alphabetically or in a custom order in Samsung One UI

If you have got a new Samsung handset running One UI, you might have already observed the new set of features available on the Samsung handsets. All the available features within the handset eventually make the experience of using the handsets even better and you should take advantage of all the features in order to streamline your workflow at the same time. Even the modern Samsung handsets and most other handsets also come with some additional apps, which you might or might not find important, and you can also download the apps that you need from the Google Play Store or the Galaxy Store. 

But, if you keep downloading multiple apps on your smartphone, there will be a time, when you will have more than multiple pages in the app drawer, and in that situation, it is quite normal to not be able to find the app that you are looking for quickly. You can always create shortcuts to the most important apps that you will use, but it is sometimes necessary to open the app drawer and open the app that you are looking for. Fortunately, there is an option that will automatically arrange the apps in the app drawer alphabetically. Furthermore,  you can also rearrange the apps in the app drawer in a custom order, which can also be important for you.
