Written by Windows Admin

Similar to the quick action feature of Windows 10, Windows 11 comes with the quick settings feature. Windows 11’s quick settings are now part of the new Action Center experience, which splits the user interface into two flyouts (quick settings and notification center). The “Quick Settings” menu contains the most common settings, such as:

  1. Wireless (WLAN),
  2. Bluetooth,
  3. Airplane mode,
  4. Power saving mode,
  5. Night light,
  6. Focus assistant,
  7. Accessibility,
  8. Shop nearby,
  9. Throw,
  10. Brightness,
  11. Volume etc.

When you play audio or video with the Microsoft Edge browser, a new media control appears in the quick settings above the flyout. From here you can play / pause or open the next / previous audio / video in the list.

You can use window + A to open the quick settings in Windows 11, while the dedicated notification center in Windows 11 has its own keyboard shortcuts, window + No. With the quick settings, you can quickly and easily manage the most frequently used PC settings such as volume, brightness, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. You can also control media playback when playing media content in Microsoft Edge browser or streaming music in apps like Spotify.
