How to Shut Down or Restart Galaxy Note 10

This quick guide explains how to shut down and restart the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus. If you just got the Note 10 and you can’t find how to turn it off, we are here to help.

Yes, believe it or not, turning off the Galaxy Note 10 is not easy. The company has removed the power button and combined it with the Bixby Assistant key. Pressing and holding the power opens Bixby instead of the familiar shutdown and reboot screen. Confusing, here’s how to access the power menu.

How to Shut Down Galaxy Note 10

  1. Tap the Power button icon in the notification dropdown
  2. Long press side key and volume down
  3. Change the ‘Side Key’ function

Technically, you have three different ways to turn off the Galaxy Note 10, which we have listed above. There’s a new power button icon in the notification pop-up bar or you can mess with the buttons on the side of the phone. Samsung now calls it the “side button” instead of the power button. Well, because it’s not a power button.

Long story short, here is the easiest way to quickly shut down your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

To get the reboot menu, indicated by the red arrows in our image above, simply press and hold both the side key and the volume down button for a few seconds. It’s silly, but apparently Samsung thought it was a good idea.

That’s literally all you need to know. You have to press two instead of one button, otherwise you’ll get Bixby Assistant instead of the reboot menu. Additionally, users can pull down the notification bar and tap the new power button for the same options.

And finally, instead of opening Bixby, you can actually go to settings and reprogram the “side key” to actually turn your phone off. Tap the power button in the notification shade, press “side key settings” at the bottom of the screen and change it to Shut down under “hold”.

Yes, please.

We’re not sure what prompted Samsung to take this approach, but perhaps they needed the extra space inside for the larger battery and S-Pen stylus. Either way, this isn’t going to make people use Bixby any more than they used to, sorry Samsung.
