Accessing Android Settings

Jelly Bean Settings ButtonThe Settings button in Android is one that you really need to get to know.  This button is the primary place to click to get to many of the settings that make your tablet tick.  True, the Nextbook works great right out of the box, but there are a few things that you need to know how to configure.

First and foremost is the Wi-Fi setting.  It appears at the top of the list, and for good reason.  Wi-Fi is critical to keeping your Nextbook connected to the outside world, but it is something that you may need to change periodically.  Whenever you connect to a network that you haven’t been on before, here is the place to enter that information.  You can also turn wireless off to save battery life when you don’t need to be connected (there’s also a widget for that).

Further down are other settings for Sound, Display, Storage, Battery and Apps.  The Apps button is another important one, as it allows you to see all of the Apps you have loaded and change their individual configuration.  You can also move Apps to the SD card to save space on the internal memory.

Settings for Location Services, Security, Language & Input and Backup & Reset are found under the Personal heading, but these are not often used.  The Accounts heading contains information about logins used on the device, but is rarely accessed from here.  The System heading has a few final options, but Date & Time is probably the only one you will need to use.

With the exception of WiFi, most of the settings on this page will be set once and forgotten about by the average user, but it’s a good idea to know how to get back to them.
