On exploring the EMUI 12 operating system to the fullest, we find a few helpful and impressive functions that give an interesting way to perform your routine tasks.



Most of the shortcuts reside in the Control Panel. Besides, EMUI 12 gives the option to add more features in the panel as per your choice. A few significant ones are the Location access, camera shortcut, and more.

There are numerous EMUI 12 shortcuts that can bring you great help. However, one of my favorite shortcuts is the screen recorder. With a single tap, the function appears and starts recording the screen. I can enable this feature whenever I want without going through the settings menu.
