Very handy short cut

Yesterday, I found out (by accident) a handy shortcut to BlueTooth and Wireless.

Normally I opened the system settings and (swipe down and activated the program as needed) I use BlueTooth very much for exchange photo's from my Mac to the Z10


So, if you dubble click om the time on top of your screen, you got a small pull down menu.

If you ciick on the BlueTooth or WiFi icon, you can activate (or stop) them without opening the menu.


Try it

Yes, indeed, you can also drag from the top of the home screen to access Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC and more.
