Add more Tiles to the Quick Settings Header [Without Root] [Android 7.0+]

On your Android 7.0+ Xperia device if you pull down the status bar of your Android phone, you’ll likely see a few notifications below a single row of Quick Settings tiles. This single line of Quick settings tile is called the Quick Settings header as it only shows the first few tiles that are available in the full set of QS tiles. There is a method to add or edit many quick settings tiles in the QS list. But there is no proper way to customize how many tiles are displayed on this Quick Settings header. Sony's Quick Settings Header is almost similar to AOSP's Quick Settings header. As there is no formal method to customize how many tiles are displayed, an xda member has found a hidden way that we can set via ADB.


  1. This will only work on Android 7.0 Devices (Xperia, AOSP, Oneplus)
  2. You will need ADB access to use this command. So download the ADB Binary Here
  3. Turn on USB Debugging on your device and Connect it to your Windows Computer. Go to Device manager and check if your device is installed correctly. If not Download the drivers from here and install the drivers manually.

  4. Now extract the downloaded ADB binary. Open the folder which contains adb.exe. Hold shift and right click an empty space on the folder and click "Open Command Window Here."

  5. Now a cmd window will pop up. Type the following code.
    adb devices
    If your device drivers have installed successfully and your device is connected to ADB successfully, cmd will show your device serial number. If it doesn't show any device at all retry the first steps again.

  6. Now we can begin to change the number of tiles. You’ll need to enter this command to modify the number of tiles shown in the QS header
    adb shell settings put secure sysui_qqs_count N
    "N" is the number of tiles you need.
    adb shell settings put secure sysui_qqs_count 3
    as I have entered 3 now, it will change the number of tiles to 3.

  7. You can have a maximum of 6 tiles divided into the space available. If you enter 7, the 7th tile will get overlapped with the drop down icon. Also, you don't need to do anything after giving the cmd command. The tiles will change instantly.
  8. Now if you need to revert back to the original count, just enter the number as "N."
  9. If you have any problems comment it on the comment section. We can sort it out.
  10. If this worked for you, don't forget to leave a comment...
