How to put a WIFI-connect button directly on the home screen ?

Hi all,

 

I know there is a wifi-connect button within the notification panel, but I have to light my screen, open the panel, then click on the 'quick settings" button, then click on the wifi connect button... 4 actions to connect myself within my own wifi network !

 

(please note I don't want the auto-connect setting because I don't want to be connected each time)

 

I would like to have just one 'wifi-connect' button on my screen which let me connect just clicking on it.
I don't find any widget nor application within my phone to do this.

Do you know how to do ?

 

Thanks a lot,
Guy

Hi,

The best thing would be to follow downloading any third party app), would be to add a shortcut to Settings > Wi-Fi. This can be if you long press at an empty space on your home screen > Choose Apps > Shortcuts > Settings > Wi-Fi.

Hi, probably the best way to do this is to configure a 3rd Party app from the Play Store......:smileysmileywink:

Hi, just had a quick glance & there is one called WiFi Manager that allows you an onscreen app & various settings, best to have a good look thru them as there does seem a few & read up if they are suitable for your needs :smileysmileywink:

Thanks to dandy63 and thanks Hampus,

 

Even if I'm sure dandy63's solution is a good one, I personally prefer the standard one, as shown by Hampus.

 

Thanks a lot both for your quick and efficient help !

 

Cordially,
Guy

I totally agree, the solution from Hampus is much more 'neater' & you dont have to download an app.......i bow to his expertise Nauseated Face
