Question

Switch from grid view to list view on smart TV

by Potzki75 / October 20, 2015 6:26 PM PDT

Hi all,
I have recently bought a Samsung UA55JU7000W smart tv. When I go to watch the media stored on my network from a media server, the tv shows all folders and files within those folders as a grid/tile view. This means that you can't see the full file name because there is not enough space in the tile for it and it scrolls the file name across the tile. This makes it very annoying to find the exact file you want quickly.

Is there a way of changing from grid/tile view into list view? This will also make it easier to navigate to the files as I will only need to use the up and down arrows instead of up, down, left and right.

Thanks,
