    I was an early very happy flip 3 owner until the dreaded cracking started on the fold. My telco gave me a refurbed replacement from Samsung. Just finished setting it up but cannot figure out how to stop apps opening as split screen. I want all my apps to open fullscreen.
    Any hints?

    Check in setting>display>full screen apps or in setting >advanced features>labs turn split screen off

    Thanks @mustang7757
    Unfortunately display>fullscreen apps only seems to adjust whether an app opens the full length of the screen or opens just below the camera cut out.
    I don't have any option to off turn split screen in labs (see attachment).

    Sadly it doesn't help. I think it is because I am using the edge panel to access my fave apps. On my old phone I could use the edge panel without triggering split screen behaviour. Looks like this version doesn't allow it.

    This works on the S22, so hopefully the same holds true for the flip:
    Open the app shortcut edge panel and tap the "Edit" button at the bottom (pencil icon). There, tap the menu button (three buttons on the top right corner) and select "Touch and hold". With that, you should be able to tap an app shortcut to open in full screen and hold and drag for split screen.
