  1. Drag your desired shooting mode out of the sub-menu and onto the ribbon. In this instance, I'm trying to add the Night and Pro modes to the camera interface.
  2. You should now see the modes in the ribbon interface at the bottom.
  3. Once you drag all the camera modes onto the ribbon, hit Save to finish editing.

That's all there is to it. Your camera modes are now easily accessible from the main interface. You can edit the position of any mode as you see fit, but you cannot move the default Photo and Video modes out of the ribbon interface.

The Galaxy S20 offers plenty of shooting modes, and in addition to Night and Pro modes, you get Panorama, Live Focus, Food, Live Focus Video, Pro Video, Slow Motion, Super Slow-Mo, and Hyperlapse. With the upgraded cameras and new shooting modes, the Galaxy S20 finally has what it takes to stand up to the best that Google and Huawei have to offer, making it the flagship to beat in 2020.
