    On my HTC I could add a widget to the home screeen which allowed me to very quickly turn on and off GPS and Wi-fi. I can't seem to find any way. When I turn on GPS (I only put it on when specifically need it), I have to navigate all the way through the settings menu; a real pain.

    Welcome to the forums. What phone do you have and which Android version is it running? In most recent phones you can edit your quick settings panel to change the system toggles when you expand the status bar.

    Thanks for registering. Yeah, in most recent phones you can still create those widgets but they won't work as toggles to switch things on & off, just like shortcuts to get you to the specific settings screen. Old classic apps like Power Toggles stopped working long time ago. I think your best option is using the toggles bar/quick settings panel.

    I'll move your thread to the Note 9 forum where it'll be easier getting feedback from other owners.

    Sounds good. I was using an HTC One M9 (3.5 years old!!) so I am a little behind on what is and is not still hanging around.

    You can find it under Samsung Android Phones or you can use the path of this thread. Once there you can subscribe to the forum so it'll be easier accessing it in the future.

    Pull down notifications, pull the icons down again. Long-press an icon to get to the settings for it, Tap it to turn it on of off. Use the pencil (down at the bottom) to get into edit mode to move the icons around, so the ones you use most often are there after one pull.,

    The app HD Widgets lets you add custom widgets to your homescreen. I've used it in the past to silence the ringer. It has a ton of options for different settings and the appearance of the widget.

    Which one?
    The one by Cloud.tv of HD Widgets Dev Team?
    I would think the latter, but the former looks more like what you described.
