HOW-TO / 04.11.14 / tywill1


The next time you need to turn a radio on or off, set your alarm, or use your device as a flashlight, make sure you take advantage of the Quick Settings menu.

This handy menu appears when you swipe down from the top of your home screen. You can customize this menu too—choose what settings appear, as well as their positions —so you can quickly get to the settings that are most important to you. Using BlackBerry 10 version 10.2.1, you can add the following items to the Quick Settings menu:

  • Bluetooth
  • Wi-Fi
  • Alarm
  • Notifications
  • Airplane Mode
  • Mobile Network
  • NFC
  • Brightness
  • Bedside Mode
  • Device Monitor
  • Location Services
  • Flashlight

To customize your Quick Settings menu, follow these steps. Depending on the number of items you select, you can swipe right or left to see them all!

  1. On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen
  2. Tap BB10-QS-01 Settings > Quick Settings 


Bonus tip! Notice the split between the icon and text? Tapping the icon turns the item on or off; tapping the label opens the corresponding Settings screen.
