Quick Settings is a feature that provides easy and quick access to commonly used settings and apps directly from the taskbar. This includes Volume, Brightness, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Airplane mode, Rotation lock, Battery saver, Accessibility, Night light, Mobile hotspot, Nearby sharing, Cast, and Project.

With Quick Settings, users can quickly toggle these settings without going through multiple menus or settings pages.

Starting with the most recent Windows 11 build 25967, the Quick Settings pane has been redesigned to include a scrollable button that scrolls to hidden items that are not initially visible, making it even more convenient. Instead of manually editing the list to add new quick actions, the user has a scrollable list of quick actions and moves them to the top.
