Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Organize Quick Shortcuts in the Stock Camera App in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

By default, the stock Camera app in Samsung Galaxy S5 places two quick shortcuts in the preview screen(HDR and selective focus) for fast and easy access. However, if needed, you can organize those quick shortcuts to fit with your need, for instance: add other items/features as quick shortcuts, remove unwanted/unused quick shortcuts or rearrange quick shortcut positions.


How to add an item/feature as a quick shortcut in the stock Camera app?
You're allowed to place up to three quick shortcuts in the preview screen in the stock Camera app. You can do so by using the following steps:
  1. Open the stock Camera app.
  2. Tap to open up the detailed settings menu.
  3. Tap and hold the required item/feature (e.g: Effects, Burst shorts, Timer, etc) you want to set as a quick shortcut and then drag it to the quick shortcuts slot. FYI, if you hold the phone vertically, the slot is at the top of the screen, in the right side of the camera settings icon.
  4. Release to place the selected item/feature in the slot.
  5. The selected item/feature has been set as a quick shortcut.
