Manage Recent Apps on Your Phone

You're in the middle of taking artsy selfies when a call comes in. After you chat, get right back to what you were doing by using the Recent Apps feature. They're all in one place for your convenience.

Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Manage Recent Apps

Now you can see your recently used and opened apps with a single touch. Here's how:

  1. From the Home screen, touch Recent.

  2. All active apps will be listed. To view more apps, swipe up or down.

  3. To close an app, swipe to the left or right.

  4. To open an app, touch it.

  5. To close all apps, touch CLOSE ALL.

List View

You can see your recently used two different ways, Thumbnail and List view. Here's how:

  1. From the Home screen, touch Recent.

  2. Touch More Options.

  3. Touch List view.

    Note: Thumbnail view is on by default.

Multi Window

Multi window lets you have two apps open on your screen at the same time. So you can work twice as fast. Here's how:

  1. From the Home Screen, touch Recent.

  2. Touch the multi window icon on the desired app.

  3. Touch the desired second app or touch APP LIST and then touch the desired second app.
