Original topic:

Edge screen is not to be found in Settings

Hello

I do have a problem. I have a new S10, and I just want to enable somehow the edge lighting for notification. Thus, in case I miss a phone call or an sms text, the phone should blink something until I take it and check what I missed. Like my old S7 is doing with the special led notification. I understood I can use the Edge Lighting for this, but when I tried to set it in the Settings, surprisingly I couldn't find the "Edge screen" sub-menu in the "Display" menu. Though I am able to find "Edge panels" as a submenu in the "Display menu", I can't find the "Edge Lighting" anywhere !

The only thing related to edge lighting I can find is in a submenu named "Brief pop-up settings" in the "Notifications" menu. It is activated, but it is running at the time of the call receiving (or message) only, and it does not blink at a regular time afterwards, so it does not fulfill what I need

So, to summarize :

- I have the following in Display menu:

    Display / Edge panels ( no Edge Screen to be found anywhere here) -> the panel is activated and it works on the up-right of the display
- I have the following in the Notification menu
   Notifications / Brief pop-up settings / Edge lighting style  -> it runs at the time of call or sms or whatever receiving only
So the main question is: where is the Edge Screen ?

The version is Android 11 with the latest updates, I have just installed the phone
Thank you so much for any help.

I could never get the edge notifications to work on my s10 ... I tried all ways to get it to work

But if you think you can then give it a try.

I am more than happy with holey light,.

Edge screen is not supported, but I found holey light a good alternative as it shows in visual graphics any type of notifications.

As I said, I was able to find this:
```
Notifications / Brief pop-up settings / Edge lighting style -> it runs at the time of call or sms or whatever receiving only
```
With this activated, it runs only once when I am receiving a message. After that, no more alerts. I wanted to follow this (i don't know if I am allowed to post links here, but I'll give a shot anyway)

yes, i can see this now. Too bad this ain't coming straight from the Settings. It seems you have to install an app for this. And I don't know about the burn-in effect for this... I tried Holey light, LED me know and aodNotify. I stayed with LED me know, even if I am afraid about the burning-in

Make sure you have the AOD ( always on display) this can be found in you display settings. Then go through the holey light set up. Colours are the fun bit as you can set any colour you want for all your notifications. If you get stuck ill try and help.
