Air command has been the centerpiece of the S Pen experience for years, and it’s no different for the Galaxy Note 10 series. Air command is a special menu for your S Pen, designed to accommodate apps and shortcuts to features that work best in conjunction with the stylus. Think of it as your digital toolbox for the S Pen.

The Air command menu can be customized to an extent, allowing you to choose what apps should be presented to you whenever you remove the S Pen from its slot.

Customize Galaxy Note 10 Air command menu

Step 1: Remove the S Pen from its slot to summon the Air command menu. You can also make Air command appear by tapping the S Pen floating icon.

Step 2: Tap the cogwheel icon in the lower-left corner to access S Pen settings, then tap Shortcuts in the Air command category.

Step 3: Tap the “-“ button associated with the shortcut(s) you want to remove from the Air command menu, and/or tap the S Pen features you wish to add to Air command. The Air command toolbar can accommodate up to 10 shortcuts at a time, so you should choose the tools that you use the most.

Optional steps: If you’d like to remove the floating Air command icon, you can follow steps 1 and 2 and then disable the Floating icon option. You can also tap When S Pen is removed and choose a different behavior other than to Open Air command.
