    Default How to customize notification pull down bar

    Is there a way to add common system setting into the notification pull down menu?

    On my old Samsung Galaxy S3, when you swipe down from the top of the screen and pull down notifications, at the top above notifications are buttons for common system settings to access (in order they are: Wi-Fi, GPS, Sound, Rotation, Bluetooth, Smart Stay, Airplane Mode, Power Saving, Hands-free mode, Screen Mirroring)

    This was very useful because was easy to quickly access key functions. For example "1) swipe down and 2) press WiFi to turn on/off" or "1) swipe down and 2) press GPS to turn location on/off".

    On my new Nexus 5 this functionality does not exist. When you swipe down to see notifications, key system buttons are not present. Instead there is a single system button in the upper right corner which you need to press to for common system settings (Brightness, Settings, WiFi, Mobile [ATT/Verizon], Battery, Airplane Mode, Bluetooth, Location)

    This means to access common system settings requires an extra step. For example "1) swipe down, 2) press system button and 3) press WiFi to access WiFi page"

    Is there a way to put these common system setting into the notification pull down menu?

    Thank you!!!

    I used Widgetsoid on my Gnex to make a custom row of toggles on the pull down shade. Worked perfectly. In the Play Store.

    As said above there is quite a few apps that replicate that functionality. Can't remember them off the top of my head though, I prefer Google's implentation, Samsungs I always thought it was ugly.

    I use Settings Extended app for this. It's very customizable and looks snazzy.

    This is true, but that doesn't seem to be what the OP is looking for.

    To the OP: I use Notification Toggle and it does the job well - it even allows you to add shortcuts to your own apps.

    What the OP was describing is Samsung's version of the Quick Settings. I didn't catch that at first, which is why I suggested Power Toggles. The two finger swipe-down is the way to bring up Quick Settings on the Nexus 5 (that, or press the toggle button at the upper right when the Notification Shade is drawn down).

    Going to have to disagree with you - he (she?) mentioned that it was on the notifications pull down. He (or she) also asked: "Is there a way to put these common system setting into the notification pull down menu?" - Quick Settings is not the same thing. It still adds an extra step, since it only takes you into the settings where you then have to enable/disable the setting you're looking for. Notification Toggle (and I assume Power Toggles) puts the toggles directly on the pull down so it's just two taps, not 3-4.

    +1 for Notification Toggle. I use it on my Moto X and I love it. Though, I might give Power Toggles a try to see how it compares.

    I guess I was just interpreting it differently. I will point out, though, that on the Nexus 5 Quick Settings, you can long press most of the buttons to act as a toggle. But I still prefer Power Toggles.

    IS there any way to disable the stock Samsung Notification pulldown bar? I like and use Notification Toggle.

    Customising quick settings from the Notification panel: for Xperia T LT30p android 4.3

    You can customise quick settings from the Notification panel by selecting the quick
    settings you want, and rearranging their order. You can select up to 10 quick
    settings, or you can also select none of them.

    To select quick settings from the Notification panel

    1 Drag the status bar downwards, then tap .
    2 Find and tap Display> Quick settings.
    3 Select the quick settings you want.

    To rearrange the quick settings from the Notification panel

    1 Drag the status bar downwards, then tap .
    2 Find and tap Display> Quick settings.
    3 Touch and hold beside a quick setting, then move it to the desired position.
