How to swap navigation buttons via ADB on any Android phone

Just a quick tutorial explaining how to reorder your navigation buttons on most Android phones without root or any additional apps needed – just ADB.

How to install Minimal ADB:

Once ADB is installed plug your phone to your PC and type:

adb devices
adb shell

Then copy/paste that code:
settings put secure sysui_nav_bar “space,recent;home;back,menu_ime”

You can pretty much reorder all 3 buttons by just, well, changing their order in the command.

Here is my other video showing how to change the looks of the buttons:

  • You are awesome! I'd been looking to swap the nav buttons on my moto Z4 and your procedure did the trick. However, on my device, it overlapped the home and back button on top of each other so I had to play with the command a bit and got it working with the following.
    settings put secure sysui_nav_bar "space,recent;home;back,space"

  • To reverse changes: settings delete secure sysui_nav_bar
    For Android 9 pie command is:
    settings put secure sysui_nav_bar "space[1.20],recent;home;back,contextual[0.60]"

  • I wanted to thank you very much for posting this video. I have been using Android Tracfone's for some time now and as long as you have an LG or a Samsung phone, you can switch the Navigation button order within the settings of the phone. Recently I tried my first Motorola Tracfone, and despite loving the phone, you can't switch the Navigation button order like you can with an LG or Samsung. Stumbling across this video (which is literally the easiest one I have seen of many videos on how to do this) finally allowed me to change the order of the Navigation Buttons. Thank you so much. I also had the problem where the buttons weren't configured correctly, and I saw "Moshin Khan's" post where he had the same problem, now my phone is exactly how I want it to be. To any people reading these comments, this is the best tutorial on how to change the order of Navigation Buttons.

  • Which way is better? This way or with the custom navigation bar App? I'll try this way too. Cauz i dont know how much the App uses my battery.
