How do I manage icons in the quick settings panel on my Galaxy Note8?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Quick Settings Panel

With your Note8, you can have all the functions you need at your fingertips. The Quick Settings Panel lets you enable and disable various functions quickly and easily. You can change the grid setting of the icons or buttons and rearrange the buttons any way you choose. Done and done.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

Button Order

Perhaps the first thing you do when you turn on your phone is connect to Wi-Fi. Change the order of the buttons in Quick Settings so the Wi-Fi button is always at the top of the list. Here’s how:

1. To open the Quick Settings panel, using two fingers, swipe down from the top of the screen.

1. To open the Quick Settings panel, using two fingers, swipe down from the top of the screen.

2. Touch the More Options icon.

3. Touch Button grid.

4. Select the desired grid formation and then touch OK.
