How to change power button on Galaxy Note 10 without running Bixby

Do you want to “get things in order” and turn off your Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10 Plus phone the way you were used to? If this is what you were looking for for so long, this guide will explain how to change the Galaxy Note 10's power button without running Bixby, Samsung's virtual assistant.

It may interest you:

As you may recall, the powerful technical features, the special Aura Glow color and a more complete S-Pen were not the only novelties introduced by the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus. They also came without the traditional power button that previous Samsung models of the same range had, which was replaced on the right-hand side by another that allows Bixby to be activated or at rest.

When you press and hold the Bixby button to turn the phones off or on, the smart assistant starts by default. So how do you disable Note 10 or Note 10 Plus? Unfold the notification tray and you will see a power icon next to the device configuration icon. Select this option and you will get the traditional energy options.

This is not necessarily ideal or intuitive, but don't worry, there is a way to prevent Bixby from starting and turn the button function into a more similar experience than the traditional power button.

First, you have to go to the section of Adjustments Swiping your finger across the notification tray and tapping the gear icon. Another alternative is to search for the application Adjustments in your applications. Now go to Advanced features> Side key. You will see an option to customize the function Press and hold down the key. You just need to select the menu option To turn off, and that's it. The sleep / wake button will now also offer you the shutdown menu when you press and hold it.

As you may have noticed above this setting, you can also customize the double-click function of the button. By default, start the camera application, but you can configure it to turn on Bixby or open any other application you have installed on your device. The choice is yours. Press the toggle key along with Double Press, if you want to disable the feature entirely.

Having one less button on the phone doesn't necessarily mean Samsung is looking to remove them and eventually opts for a buttonless phone in the future, though the Galaxy S20 range introduced in 2020 also came without them. Also, it wouldn't be the first time we saw a phone without any physical buttons.

If you are an owner of your Note 10 Plus, you may also need a case to protect the attractive glass back.
