    How to Rearrange Action Center Quick Actions on Windows 10 Mobile Phone

    information   Information
    Windows 10 Mobile puts important notifications from your apps just a swipe away in action center, along with quick actions, which get you to your most-used settings and apps instantly.

    Swipe down from the top of your screen to open action center and see your notifications and quick actions.

    Quick actions take you right to (or turn on or off) the settings and apps you're likely to use often, from Bluetooth to brightness. Press and hold a quick action for a setting to jump directly to that setting's page. When you open action center you'll see either your top four picks or all your available quick actions. Expand or collapse them to see more or fewer quick actions.

    Starting with Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 14322, you can add, remove and re-arrange the Quick Actions that show up in Action Center.

    This tutorial will show you how to rearrange quick actions in the action center on your Windows 10 Mobile phone.

    Note   Note
    In Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 14342, the Settings app may crash when you are re-arranging Quick Actions. If it does, it could result in one of the Quick Action spots disappearing. If you see this happen, please refrain from changing your Quick Action settings on this build. If you have been impacted by this issue, only a hard reset will revert your Quick Action settings back to default.

    It seems on newer builds this has changed. I only have the option to change the bottom four!

    Hello Paul, :)

    I have Windows 10 Mobile 10.0.14332.1001 installed, and this still works for me to arrange in all rows. Double check that you are pressing and holding long enough to be able to drag and drop the action where you like within the other actions.

    Hi Brink,

    Version 1511, OS Build 10.0.10586.218.

    I only have the 4 bottom ones to change. I don't know how to do a screen grab to show you, sorry.

    Paul.

    Ah, that's why then. You don't have build 14332 installed. It's an Insider preview build.
