Help Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Not Support Extra Tiles?

Lane Lester

I have tried a few apps that are supposed to add a tile to the bunch in the quick-action set. No tile ever shows up.

Does the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, Android 9, not allow extra tiles?

Pull down the quick settings menu, and look for the pen icon.

Tap it to enter edit mode.

Keep in mind that the first six on top are considered the main ones, they appear even when the menu is pulled partway down.
These should be your most used ones.

The rest will be listed further down, and below the active ones is a line with a note saying 'drag below to remove'.

The tiles for apps that you have installed are most likely below this line, so long press them and bring them above it.

Occasionally there may be a glitch (in my experience, with multiple devices) where a tile is way down in the bottom and it will not allow me to bring it up into the useable tile range.

If that happens, just bring up tiles above it into the useable range until the one you want is there too, then pull the undesired ones back down below the line.

Tedious, but effective.

Thanks! I don't have a pen icon, but I have a three-dot icon which offers Button Order. That item provides the ability, add, delete, and order the icons.
