Quick Tips: Create shortcuts to your favorite apps on the S5

0:46 /

Find out how to customize Toolbox, a feature that lets you access your favorite apps no matter where you are on the device.

[MUSIC] Toolbox is a useful new feature on the Galaxy S5 that gives you quick access to your favorite applications no matter where you are on the phone. To enable it, head to the quick settings menu and tap toolbox. You'll see a little white button appear on the screen. This button will float around even when you're in other apps or even on a phone call. It's already populated with apps, but you can customize it by long-pressing, then dragging it over edit. Here check the apps you want in your toolbox. You can choose up to five. When you're done, hit save and enjoy easy access to your favorite apps. For Cnet, I'm Sharon Profis.
