Apps edge settings on phone

With so many apps and features on your phone, sometimes it takes a while to find what you need. Kind of like speed dial, Edge Panels let you access your favorite apps and content quickly and easily. And to make things better, you can add, remove, or download Edge panels any time you want.

Add or remove Edge panels

If you always check your favorite sports team's scores and how the stock market is doing, you can add your most-used apps to your Edge panel for quick access.

You can select up to 9 Edge panels. Swipe left to open the Edge panel, and then touch the Settings icon at the bottom left. Select or deselect the edge you want to add or remove.

Edit Edge panels

The customization doesn't end with adding and removing apps; you can also edit each individual panel. If you use one app more than another, move it to the top of the list.
