Samsung Galaxy S4 Tips: 3 Easy Ways To Access The Toggle Menu

The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a number of interesting features designed to make the user’s smartphone experience as streamlined as possible. One might expect a number of these features to be difficult to access, but Samsung has even made navigating the Galaxy S4 a breeze, incorporating multiple methods of accessing some of the device’s primary functions. Check out three easy methods for accessing the toggle menu on a Samsung Galaxy S4 handset.

Swipe Notification Panel Toggle List Right And Left 

Many Galaxy S4 users may not realize that when they access their notification panels, they can swipe the five toggles to the right with one finger to access the others. Another swipe to the left will bring the toggles back to their original place. 

Access Full Toggle Menu From Icon In Upper Right Corner 

After a user accesses the notification panel with a single finger swipe at the top of the screen, he or she can access the full toggle menu by tapping the boxes icon located in the upper right corner of of the Galaxy S4’s screen next to the cog icon for settings. From there, all of the toggle icons are visible, and a user can also access the toggle settings (Notification Panel Settings) by pressing the pencil icon in the top right corner, which is next to the lined icon that closes the window.

Access Full Toggle Menu With Two-Finger Downswipe 

Galaxy S4 users can also quickly access the full toggle menu by using two fingers to swipe down from the top of the screen instead of one finger. This Easter egg method of sorts is likely the easiest method of accessing the toggle menu.

Check out the video below to see how to use all three of the methods to access the toggle menu:

Editing The Toggle Menu And Accessing Individual Toggle Settings

Users can also edit their order of the toggles in their menus. Under the Notification Panel Settings, users can hold down the toggles and move them to the positions they desire. Moving toggles to the first five slots will dictate which toggles are visible in the notification panel. Additionally, holding down a toggle in either the notification panel or the toggle menu will take one directly to the setting for that toggle, which would otherwise be accessible through settings.
