    • Within the Quick Settings screen you can access the following options:
      • Sleep Mode - Set the console to sleep mode.
      • Automatic Brightness (Nintendo Switch console only) - Enable/disable screen brightness adjustment based on ambient brightness.
      • Screen Brightness - Manually adjust screen brightness.
      • Volume Control - Adjust the volume on the console speakers.

    To exit Quick Settings, perform one of the following actions:

    • Press the B Button
    • Press the HOME button
    • Tap outside of the Quick Settings screen
