    Here we can see it says "Edit Quick Settings", with the words "Press and hold right icon to rearrange"

    These are our current Quick Settings. These are the ones we have on our menu currently. We may want to rearrange these settings and place them in different positions so we can form groups of common interest or function.

    We can do as the phone says and press and hold the right icon to rearrange, this right icon features three horizontal gray lines

    Press down on one of these icons, for our example we will use "WiFi", dragging it while we hold our finger down to move it around

    We can move this around to wherever we would like.

  13. 13
    Perhaps we want to place it near "Bluetooth" because they have they have similar functions and both use similar ideas, so let's put them together by placing "WiFi" above "Bluetooth" and releasing our finger
    .
    We also have "Saver" and "EXT Saver" together which also share similar functions and are useful to have together.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    For a second example, let's say we use "Sound Profile" quite a lot, therefore we are going to press down on the right icon again, the three gray horizontal lines, and move this up to the top
    .
    This is because it is more important for our daily lives and needs to be easily accessible.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    We are going to place "Sound Profile" right at the top, then release our finger to place it
    .
    With this, we see that we can edit these any way that we like and rearrange them, place the ones that are important to us at the top to allow us easy access to these quick settings.
