    It is not a new feature.... It is there in my note 5 too in both lollipop and marshmallow.

    You can use better open with from the play store to use similar to "just once" functionality. I actually prefer better open with over the old just once option personally.
    Why even offer a reply if you didn't read the actual problem at hand? No, this is NOT the same 'feature' as offered in Lollipop. The lack of the 'Just Once' option is debilitating and a major nuisance.

    And the OP is not interested, nor is anyone else, in your useless commentary in regards to what YOU prefer. He posted a request for assistance, not a plea for someone to comfort him.

    For future reference, please do the community a favor, and simply refrain from interjecting your comments when you have nothing useful to offer.

    Woah, tone it down there tiger! If you read the entire post, he did recommend a solution called "Better Open With" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...openwith&hl=en) but even if he didn't, he's trying to help. I noticed that your post did not try to help anyone. I might recommend that you take a few moments to read our Community Rules & Guidelines, here. I'm not sure if you noticed, but that's one of the moderators of the forum that you just went after. Unfortunately, per the rules you're a little out of line here and if we're going to continue to converse we need to make sure everyone is doing so in a polite, helpful and respectful manner. Unfortunately I didn't get that vibe from your post, so please try to do better going forward. Thanks!

    Hello guys, don´t use to use forums but this Samsung Galaxy S7 was driving me crazy until I found the solution, to avoid set an app as default automatically on the samsung galaxy S7, you don´t need any app, Samsung tought that was a nice option to give users the option to either once you selected an app to open a file set it as default automatically or you decide everytime how you want to open that file, which is want a lot of people like me wants, here it is:

    SETTINGS >> APPLICATIONS>> DEFAULT APPLICATIONS>> DEFAULT APP SELECTION>> (YOU SELECT YOUR DESIRE OPTION)

    Thank you hoping this helps....

    No, on my S7, there's no option "DEFAULT APP SELECTION" under "DEFAULT APPLICATIONS"

    I wish there were.

    If you guys received the official June update from Samsung, you'd find that they brought back the set default and just once options. If your carrier didn't push it....

    Have you tried clear the defaults for apps then recheck to see if it gives the option.

    Mine is brand new, and loaded the July update right after the phone activated. It was a pretty small update. My software is now at APF2.

    Besides downloading another app to manage this issue, has anyone found a different fix? An example of when this is annoying is when texting pics, I don't always want my phone gallery to be the default. I may want to send an emoji or meme from a different app I've downloaded

    Not without the aforementioned software update, which is dependent on carriers to send out.

    I'm converting, not calling it upgrading anymore as my s7 seems worse than my old s4 mini, software wise that is of course, I loved my s4 mini compared to this crap.

    I just got my Verizon S7 from Bestbuy on July 14th. After activating it I kept checking for updates and if I'm not mistaken it updated 6 times before it said up to date, no more updates. With that said, this function is definitely not there. So until Verizon adds it back, I'm actually going to call them about it today to request/see when it's coming, it looks as though the "Better Open With" app combined with using "ES File Manager" for browsing is the closest thing.

    If you browse your media with ES File Manager, it has it's own app launcher built it that lets you open an app for that file type JUST ONCE if you just click the app, or you can set that app as default with a radio button and then clicking it.

    I find using ES File Manager easier to find all my media anyways, certainly compared to bloated apps like gallery, and ESFM responds so much quicker.

    The downside is it isn't global. So if trying to access an app from within the system, for example set ringtone from settings or select a pic from messaging, it doesn't work there very easily Also you are only setting the ES File Manager default, not a global default, but I think we all know how to do that now, right?

    I hope this helps someone AND PLEASE once Verizon has included this update LET EVERYONE KNOW by posting here!!

    I can't get Better open with to work?! I flip the switch to ask what app for images but when I look again the switch is turned off? It allows me to only select once then it sets default like usual???? How do I keep that switch on? I'm on Marshmallow Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5.
    What am I doing wrong? Anyone know?

    So I picked up my Galaxy S7 Edge yesterday, and I'm generally very pleased with it... But there is one annoyance.

    On my previous phone, the S5 (I skipped the 6es because no MicroSD support) I felt that Samsung had KNOCKED the always-vexing issue of setting defaults. When I'd select something that would need to open an app to process, it would display a selection of compatible apps, and provide me two buttons: "Always" or "Just Once." This way, stuff I knew I'd always want to handle the same way (Phone calls, say) would be assigned a default app, and stuff that is better served by choosing the app on a per-use basis (Web Browsers, for instance, when different pages render better in different mobile browsers, or videos, which I might choose to watch in different players based on content or file type) gives me the option every time.

    Samsung has taken a giant step backwards in the S7 Edge (and, I guess, the S7,) by making whatever app you choose to process such a link as the default automatically. So every time I, say, click a link in an e-mail to open a web page, I have to go into Settings | Applications | Default Applications | Set Defaults, find the web browser that's been selected as default,open it, and Clear Defaults.

    I called Sprint Tech Support, and spoke to a first-level "knucklehead stuff' gunky, and was passed on to real techsupport, who transferred me to Samsung, where the rep insisted that I do, I do have "Always" and "Just Once" buttons, until I let her try it herself via remote access. Once she understood that it happened every time, she spent ten minutes teaching me what I already know about the 7-step process to clear defaults, and told me what a wonderful new feature this is to make life easier for me, and how I really just have to get used to my new phone. Uh... No.

    This isn't a deal-breaker for me, but it's a HUGE annoyance, and I DEFINITELY need to see Samsung take steps to fix it.

    In the meantime, anybody got a better workaround than that eternally-repeated 7-step trek into the settings?
    I agree! I hate when any application or OS takes the decisions for me. I use a four steps workaround: open apps screen; tap/hold the icon and drag it to [app info] on top bar; tap [default settings] and clean it.
    It's annoying anyway!
    ES File Explorer kept the check box to choose if you want to default or not.

    There's an option to set it to ask if you want a app as default, or to always ask in the default section.
