The Home screen is supposed to be the page that contains all widgets or shortcuts that you often use. But if you were a Samsung Galaxy S5 owner, you must have experienced being bugged by the company's My Magazine bloatware.


Fortunately, you can easily hide My Magazine from the Home screen and even disable it to prevent the app from running in the background and use up RAM or add to the burden of the processor.

Perhaps, Samsung developers already anticipated that My Magazine would become more of an annoyance than anything else that's why owners can disable it at will unlike other bloatware.

Hiding My Magazine
  1. Swipe to the Home screen that still has unfilled area.
  2. Tap and hold a blank area until the phone enters Edit mode.
  3. Tap Home screen settings.
  4. Now, put a mark inside the check box beside My Magazine.
This procedure will "hide" the service from the Home screen (and stops annoying you), however, it doesn't prevent it from running. So, when you go to the Application Manager and swipe to the "Running" tab, you can still find My Magazine there. It means that it continues to run in the background. Didn't you wish to just kill it? Well, the following procedure will guide you through?

Disabling My Magazine
  1. From the Home screen, tap the Apps icon.
  2. Find and tap Settings.
  3. Scroll to APPLICATIONS.
  4. Tap Application Manager.
  5. Swipe left or right until contents of All tab are displayed.
  6. Scroll to and tap My Magazine.
  7. Now, tap the Disable or Turn Off button.
That's it! You killed My Magazine on your Samsung Galaxy S5. But please note that its remains remain in your phone's internal storage but they could never disturb you.
