The "Settings level" can be changed using the button in the bottom left which shows the currently selected level.
Note that there are four tiered settings levels where each level unlocks more settings, the levels are:

4 Advanced settings
This file is used for advanced settings and options that do not have GUI controls inside of Kodi. Some settings are experimental or very rarely set, so they can only be used via the advancedsettings.xml file. The file is simply a plain text file and can be edited by various text editors, so long as the name is "advancedsettings.xml". These advanced settings can be used to tweak various things such as episode naming patterns, special network ports, special behaviors, and more.
