Surely, you’ll agree with us that the Google Account backup approach is one of the best methods to help store up your data, including Contacts, Google Calendar events, Messages, Wi-Fi networks and passwords, Wallpapers, Gmail settings, and many more. By opting for the approach, users can quickly and easily restore their devices after a factory reset. With the same method, users can also quickly set up their new devices as well. However, there’s always an issue that users often face, while trying to restore their devices. And that is, the backup approach often skips the “Edit” button in the Quick Toggle settings, especially for Xiaomi users.

In case you are a Xiaomi user, and you also experience this issue, you might have to stop worrying too much about it.

In this article, we’ll be showing you how you can restore the missing “Edit” button in the Quick Toggle settings of your Xiaomi device. Interestingly, we’ll be showing you how you can fix the issue on Android One, Stock Android, and MIUI-running Xiaomi smartphones.

How To Fix The ‘Edit’ Button In The Quick Toggle Settings Of Your Android One Devices

In case you’ve lost the ‘Edit’ button in the quick toggle settings of your Android One Xiaomi device, there’s a way you can fix it back. It’s worth noting that this same fix will also help to restore the ‘Edit’ button on any stock Android devices.

Let’s have a quick look at the step by step approach below:

  • Firstly, ensure you install the SystemUI Tuner from PlayStore.
  • Once you’re done with the installation, open the app, head to the quick settings panel, and reset it.
  • Reboot your phone and you’ll be able to see the ‘Edit’ button.

Also, it’s worth noting that the above method only work for non-MIUI devices. In case you make use of MIUI-running Xiaomi devices, check below for a fix for the missing ‘Edit’ button.

How To Fix The Issue On MIUI-Running Xiaomi Devices

Unlike the fix for Android One and Stock Android devices, the fix for MIUI devices is not quite simple and straightforward. This method is different, as it requires that you install ADB (Android Debug Bridge) on your PC. And to do that, you might have to also install Android SDK Platform-tools from here. In case your PC runs on Windows 7 operating system, you might want to download and install Xiaomi USB drivers here.

That said, here are the steps you can follow to restore the missing ‘Edit’ button in the Quick Toggle settings of your MIUI-running Xiaomi device below:

  • Firstly, you need to open your settings app, go to Additional Settings, and then tap the Developer Options button. From there, turn on both the USB Debugging and USB Debugging (Security Settings) icons. However, in case you’re unable to find the Developer Options, you might have to go to About Phone on your Settings app and tap on the MIUI version 7 times. By so doing, you’ll be able to enable the Developer Options.
