Change the look of the Quick Settings panel on your Galaxy phone or tablet

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 or tablet 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 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, swipe down from the top of the screen using two fingers. Tap More options (the three veritcal dots), and then tap Button order. To move a button, touch and hold it, and then drag it into the desired position. Tap Done when you're finished.

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).
