Put common settings at your fingertips with Quick Settings in Sense 6

The Quick Settings panel in Sense 6 gives you access to a lot of the common system toggles and settings most folks use on a regular basis. From turning wifi and Bluetooth on and off to enabling Extreme Power Saving Mode, here's how to set up and use Quick Settings on your HTC One M8:

  1. From virtually anywhere on your HTC One M8, slide your finger down from the top of the screen to pull down the notification drawer.
  2. Tap on the Quick Settings icon at the top right of the screen.
  3. Now tap on any icon to toggle it on or off or edit it. Tap on the dots in order to launch into the Settings menu for that setting.
