Hello Robert! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. What's the model of your Samsung tablet?

Have you tried to power off the tablet completely (press & hold power on/off button for about 20 seconds), then turn it back on and check?

If that does not work, is it okay to reset the tablet fresh?

Please let me know. Thank you.

Yes only the internet

Expert:  Viet - Android Tech replied 3 years ago.
Thank you. Please power off the tablet completely again, then turn it back on. Then don't open internet yet, but go to Settings app, then Apps or Application manager option, then go to the All option, then scroll down, then open internet app there, then clear data (and/or clear cache), and check.

Please let me know. Thank you.

There is no internet app on the application Manager list

Expert:  Viet - Android Tech replied 3 years ago.
In Application Manager, did you go to the ALL option first?

And/or in Application Manager, swipe from right to left a couple of times, then you will see all the application names.

Please let me know. Thank you.
