Samsung revamped it’s TouchWiz UI with the launch of the Galaxy S5, and all devices that came out after the Galaxy S5 have this new TouchWiz. The functionality of keys has been changed in this new UI, and it might confuse some users. Earlier, the recent apps menu came up by long pressing the Home key [the only hard key in the center-bottom of the screen], while the menu key – left to the Home button opened up options for any application or any on-going process. The functionality of these keys is changed now, long pressing the Home button no longer opens the recent apps menu, but the Menu key does this job now.
Now that the Galaxy Note 4 is also out and it has the same interface atop of Android 4.4.4 KitKat, it has the same functionality in those keys and it’s confusing the Galaxy Note 4 owners who are not aware of this change. To help those, we’ve made this little single step guide.
Press the Menu key on your Galaxy Note 4, the recent apps panel will open up. Now you can either press the cross button on the bottom right to close all recent applications or you can press the circle on the bottom left to access Active Applications and kill all the running applications.
That’s all. We hope that this guide helps those who were not able access the task manager. Let us know if you should require any further help.
