How to Fix white line on Screen?

MIUI 12

This is a feature that allows users to navigate through their Xiaomi smartphone through different types of swipes instead of needing to tap on the navigation for accessing the Home Screen, going back, or accessing the recently opened apps. Since those buttons are no longer needed when the gestures feature is enabled, they get removed from the screen, freeing-up some screen space. However, on some MIUI devices, there will be a white line placed at the bottom of the screen. Its purpose is to make it easier for users to locate the place from where the swipe-gesture should begin. However, many people who have their gestures mode enabled dislike this line and dont want it or need it on their displays. The good news is that Xiaomi gives you the option to remove it. Here is how you can do that:

  1. Go to the Settings menu and type full screen display in its search bar.

Enabling/Disabling the MIUI gestures feature

  3. Tap on the Full screen gestures button to enable it. You will be asked if youd like to first go through a quick tutorial on how to use the different gestures to navigate through your phone. We advise you to opt for the tutorial and maybe even complete it a couple of times because it could be a bit disorienting if you directly enable the gestures mode without first memorizing what each gesture does. Once you are confident youve got the hang of it, tap on Im done and go back to using your phone.

  1. If you dont feel comfortable using this navigation mode or if you simply prefer to have your navigation buttons back, you can always return them by repeating steps 1-3 but this time choosing the Buttons option.
