Customising and using the Quick Settings menu on Android can vary slightly depending on the device manufacturer and the version of Android you're using. However, it's necessary to follow the steps we are about to share in this article or book a reservation with Carlcare if the following step does not work with your phone.

How To Customise And Use Quick Settings Menu On Android

However, the following steps should provide a general guideline for most Android devices running a recent version of the operating system:

  1. Swipe down from the top of your Android device's screen to open the notification shade.
  2. Once the notification shade is open, you'll likely see a row of icons or tiles representing some of your Quick Settings. This row may expand when you swipe down again, revealing additional settings.
  3. Look for a small pencil icon or an "Edit" button in the Quick Settings area. It may be located in the top right corner, or you may need to swipe left or right to find it.
  4. Tap on the pencil icon or the "Edit" button to enter the Quick Settings customization mode.
  5. You should now see a list of available Quick Settings tiles. These tiles represent different settings or shortcuts that you can add or remove from your Quick Settings menu.
  6. To add a tile to your Quick Settings menu, find the desired tile in the list and drag it to your preferred location in the Quick Settings grid.
  7. To remove a tile from your Quick Settings menu, locate the tile in the grid and drag it out of the grid or to the "Remove" or "Delete" area.
  8. Some devices allow you to customise the order of the tiles by dragging and rearranging them in the grid. This allows you to prioritise the settings you use most frequently.
  9. Once you've finished customising your Quick Settings menu, tap the back button or the "Done" button to save your changes and exit the customization mode.
  10. You can now swipe down from the top of the screen to access your custom Quick Settings menu. The tiles you added or rearranged should be visible and easily accessible.
