Samsung DeX lets you connect your phone to a monitor and use it like a PC. But what if you're in DeX mode and want to change your phone's settings, like the font size? Don't worry, you don't need to disconnect your phone; you can adjust your phone's settings while it's still in DeX mode.

Note: Samsung DeX is only available on phone models, including S8, S9, S10, Note8, Note9, and Note10.

Access your phone's settings in DeX

If your phone is in DeX mode, you can still adjust some of its settings, like your Wi-Fi network or notifcation sounds.

With your phone connected, click Settings on the monitor. This will open up your phone's Settings menu, and you'll be able to adjust its settings. And just like on your phone, you can use the Setting menu's search function to find the options you're looking for.

If you aren't sure how to change a certain setting on your phone, you can should check your phone's user manual.
