With the advent of BlackBerry 10.2.1, a lot of small little tweaks as well as some nice big additions has made the OS even more of a pleasure to use. One of the things a lot of people requested for was better options in the Quick Settings menu. While we had some nice options, we wanted the ability to choose what could be seen in the menu. Those options arrived with BlackBerry 10.2.1. So, let's take a walkthrough of the Custom Quick Settings.

By default, a few things have been automatically added to the Quick Settings menu once you update to BlackBerry 10.2.1. For some, those new additions may just be enough. Like the addition of the Flashlight option, NFC and Device Monitor. But there are other options you can add, or even take away too.

How to edit and change the Quick Settings menu

  • Go into Settings by tapping the Settings icon or by swiping down in the Homescreen and tapping Settings
  • Tap Quick Settings

Quick Settings in the Settings menu

  • Check or uncheck any options you would like to see in the Quick Settings menu
  • To rearrange the order of them, tap Rearrange. Re-order options as you wish by dragging them, then hit Save

That's it. Quick and easy. If you have a Q-device and you have more than 8 options ticked, you will have to scroll across to see more. Even with the Z10, if you had all options ticked, you'll find the rest by scrolling across. If there are options you would really use more, then move them up to the top so you'll see them first.
