How to edit switches\shortcut arrangement?

Hi there!

I believe you have restored an earlier backup when setting up your device. That's what caused the edit button to disappear. The edit button isn't generally backed up and when restoring it, it will be missing. There are a few methods to solve this :

Method #1 - Install SystemUI Tuner from PlayStore and reset the quick settings panel.

Method #2 - Using ADB (download platform tools to your PC) : Download
  • Set USB debugging for device and also security settings. Go to Settings - Additional settings - Developer options - enable both USB debugging and USB debugging (Security settings). If Developer options are not available, go to Settings - About phone - click on MIUI version 7 times to enable Developer options.
  • Connect your device using USB 2.0 port to your PC.
  • On your PC, open cmd (command prompt) and go to your path with the executable. For example, cd C:\Users\user\Desktop\platform-tools_r30.0.1-windows\platform-tools (choose the path in your PC - I would suggest saving the Platform Tools in C:\ folder). If you're new to command prompt, read this.
  • Type adb devices hit enter to confirm that you see you device
  • Type adb shell settings put secure sysui_qs_tiles default and hit enter (you may copy-paste this command).
Voila! This should reset your status bar and quick settings tab.

Cheers! :-)

Thanks for the advise. Unable to proceed with System UI tuner. Will try 2nd method with Window later.

Try with turning on USB Debugging (Security settings) under Developer Options. I guess that's needed. Note that the app isn't focused for MIUI as it is heavily customised - but resetting the status bar and quick toggles should work. If this doesn't help, kindly go with the second method.
Cheers! :-)

I still can't do it, help me please!

Use the second method - that works for everyone. Install all device drivers and connect your phone to your PC via USB 2.0 port and the follow the instructions in comment #1.

Well, I realized how stupid I am. I opened the cdm but I ended up stuck there. Thanks for the patience to help me, but I really don't understand after that 🙁

I think it would be better if you could watch some video tutorial on how to use command prompt in YouTube - just the basics, before you start using these commands. That way you'll know what these terms mean and it would be helpful for you. Here's one : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNwErTxfkUA

Make sure you read about commands used in cmd so that you get a better idea.

Cheers! :-)

Hi, it don't work for me... can you help me?

Do you have all drivers installed properly? I would suggest you to open this from the local C:\ folder.

hello friend, does this method work for a Redmi Note 7 which also disappeared this edit option?
It happened after a security update in May.

Method 2 works for all MIUI devices.

for the 2nd method, when I open cdm what should I do? already installed SDK platform tools.

Just type the commands as written in the first comment. Make sure you open the command prompt in the folder with platform tools. Connect your device and type the comments. It's highlighted in blue colour, if you are checking this from a PC.

Cheers! :-)
