    How to Rearrange Action Center Quick Actions in Windows 10


    The Action Center has personalized quick actions at the bottom to be able to easily toggle on/off or open items such as Airplane mode, All settings, Connect, Display, Location, Note, Quiet hours, Tablet Mode, VPN, and Wi-Fi.

    Starting with Windows 10 nuild 14328, you can re-arrange the Quick Actions that show up in Action Center.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 18277, you can now easily customize your quick actions right from the Action Center itself, rather than having to go into Settings. That means not only can you re-arrange in the moment, but you can also add any quick action you need on the fly, without needing for it to always take up space.

    This tutorial will show you how to rearrange quick actions in the action center for your account in Windows 10.
