How to Enable The Screen Pinning Feature on Android

Android devices comes with a lot of features but only very few individual are able to
explore these features. Today I’m going to show you another  features on your android device in which some
people are not even aware of how it works while some others are already
exploring it.

‘Screen
Pinning’
allows you to pin (lock) the screen to a certain app. This is one of
the useful  features in Android 5.0 and
above. When enabled, you can lock down your device so the person using it only
has access to one app. undoubtedly, a convenient feature for those who often
offer a device to a child to watch a movie/games or a friend to check his or
her e-mail.

How to
Enable Screen Pinning on Your Android Device?
1. Launch the Settings
app on your Android device.
2. Scroll down until
you find the Security option. Tap on it.
3. At the bottom of
the Security page tap on Screen pinning.
4. Slide the switch
to the On position.
How to Pin an App?
1. To pin an app,
tap on the overview button (it’s the square button along the bottom of your
screen).
2. Drag the title
bar
for the app
you’re going to pin up, until it’s in the middle of the screen.

3. In the
bottom-right corner of the app overview will be a blue pin button. Tap
on it.
4. Each time you pin
an app, you’ll be asked to confirm the action. You’ll also have to
decide if you want to require a security code to leave the pinned app.
5. Tap on Start
to pin the app.
Once
the app is pinned, the user can navigate anywhere within the app, but he or she
can’t leave it. So if you pin Chrome, the user will be able to browse the
Internet, but that’s it.

  1. I have charging problem with my X551. It has a non removable battery. The problem is it doesn't flash charge anymore. I have changed cord to 3 different types of USB cord, still no flash charging just charging normal (and that can take hours)
