What is Galaxy S5 camera shortcuts menu?
Galaxy S5 camera has different settings for various purposes. If you open Galaxy S5 camera app settings, you will find that you must scroll down to see all of the 27 settings items.
To make your life easier, Galaxy S5 camera shortcuts menu allows you to put up to 5 items (as shown in the green box below) in the camera app interface.
For items in the shortcut menu in Galaxy S5 camera app, normally, you can tap it to turn on or off the feature very quickly. This will allow you to enjoy the camera, instead of fiddling around settings.
Most importantly, you can customize them. In other words, you can choose frequently-used items there, and are not limited to the default shortcuts.
But there is one limitation. In landscape mode, the menu can only accommodate up to 5 shortcuts. Two of them (the first and the last one) can not be changed.
In other words, the shortcut for switching between front and rear cameras must be the first one. The settings icon must be the last one.
So, essentially, you can only customize 3 shortcuts of the 5 between these two.
How to customize Galaxy S5 camera shortcuts menu?
To customize Galaxy S5 camera shortcuts menu, you may follow these steps.
Step 1: Start Camera app.
Step 2: Tap settings icon as shown above.
Step 3: Add (or replace) shortcut to the menu.
In the settings list, you can find the settings/features that you used frequently. Tap and hold it, then move it to the shortcuts menu location.
In this guide, for example, we want to add a shortcut to turn on/off/auto flash to the shortcut menu.
So, you can tap and hold Flash settings, then move it to the menu area as shown in the following two pictures.
Once you drag Flash settings to the desired location, drop (release) it.
If there are less than 5 items in the shortcut menu, the new shortcut will be added directly as shown below.
The location will depend on the location where you release (drop) the item.
However, if there are already 5 items in the camera shortcut menu, the new shortcut will be added, and one old shortcut will be removed automatically.
The shortcut removed is the one over which you dropped the new settings (in this example, it is Flash).
In this scenario, the new shortcut simply replaces the old one.
Please note, when you drag and drop an item to the shortcut menu, the item is still in the settings list. Only a shortcut is added to the camera shortcut menu.
Once the shortcut is added to the Galaxy S5 camera shortcut menu, it has the identical function and settings as that accessed from Settings icon. This is the purpose of Galaxy S5 camera shortcut menu.
