How are the System Apps viewed in 4.2.2? There is not a More, or Show System Apps that I can see,

I'm answering questions for a Samsung support person (Print spooler Version?) about Samsung Print Service Plugin problems.(it works on a 4.2.2 Tab & 6.0.1 Tab, not on a Galaxy S5). Only Downloaded, SD Card, Running, and All apps are listed under 4.2.2 apps.

Any help appreciated.

The system does not provide such option, apps are not filtered, all apps are listed in All tab. You can filter apps by type using an app such as ES Explorer.

Open the app, touch the android logo labelled APP, then touch the dropdown menu and select system apps.

  • I looked in the 'All' but there is not a Print Spooler listed, or Spooler. I will see if ES Explorer lists it.

  • Maybe because you don't have it installed. Did you check in Settings > More Connection Settings > Printing ? I don't own an S5, but on my J5 the option is present

  • This Tab prints perfectly, maybe spooler is there somewhere. I'm just looking for it to provide Samsung with the spooler version. I'm working with a Sam Tab Lite 7" (Android 4.2.2 at the moment). I found the spooler in the Sam Gal S5 easily. I'll resume this project later today.

  • Okay. Do you have Samsung Printing Service Plugin app installed? Can you find it in the tablet?

  • Yes I can find the Samsung printer plugin (also the HP printer plugin). I must say I have setup probably 100 or more Androids to print, Samsung Tablets, S5, and S7, but have not experienced this S5 failure.
