Is it possible to switch off "Quick Access"?

Hi there,

is it possible to completely deactivate the “Quick Access”? It’s super annoying as it interferes with one of my widgets that happen to have a button in the area of the edge of the screen.


Do you mean the swiping gesture to open favorite apps?

You can disable this by using a different launcher. See a long list of possible alternatives on play store.

…or our own forum compilation of Android launchers + descriptions and recommendations:


is it also possible to change the lock screen (with the lock in the circle) or is that part of the OS?

You can choose under "System Settings --> Security --> Unlocking"
Cheers, Robert
