Change the button order or grid in the Quick Settings panel on your Galaxy phone

Girl looking at phone

Your phone gives you tons of control options - and you don't even need to go looking for them. The Quick Settings panel on your Galaxy phone lets you access and use different functions quickly and easily. For example, you can turn on Airplane Mode or mute your phone's sound. You can change the button order or grid setting of the buttons and rearrange the buttons any way you choose.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model. 

Change the button order

Maybe you're always connecting to Wi-Fi or using your phone's flashlight. If that's the case, you can change the button order so your favorite shortcuts show up first.

To open the Quick Settings panel, using two fingers, swipe down from the top of the screen. Tap More Options, and then tap Button order. To move a button, touch and hold it, and then drag it into the desired position. Tap Done.

Need more buttons? Just change the button's formation. You can have as many as 15 buttons and as few as 9 on your Quick Settings panel. It can be done in a few simple steps.

To open the Quick Settings panel, using two fingers, swipe down from the top of the screen. Tap More Options, and then tap Button grid. Select the desired grid formation and then tap OK.

Access settings for Quick Settings

You know that tapping a Quick Setting icon automatically activates convenient features. But what about when you want to access the feature’s settings?

To do this, open the Quick Settings panel by swiping down from the top of the screen. Then, tap the name of the feature under the icon. For example, if you want to access the Flashlight settings, tap the word Flashlight.

A setting menu will automatically appear. Sometimes, you may need to tap Details to be taken to the full settings page. Also, please note that certain settings might be grayed out or not appear if the feature is turned off (e.g. Wi-Fi networks may not show if Wi-Fi is turned off).
