Note 1: You can delete the recent apps from the list by swiping them sideways one by one.
Note 2: On Android 2.x, tap and hold the Home button to disclose recent apps.
- How to Close a Running App
The Android system doesn’t require you to shut down a running app for every case. But in some instances you may be required to force discontinue an app that’s bad, or for example playing a game, you may be required to in fact shut down the app to give a start to a new level rather than continuing the last. Here are the steps to follow:Run the Settings app and tap Apps under the DEVICE option.
Select the app you want to shutdown.
Tap the ‘Force stop’ button and tap ‘OK’ to confirm.
- How to Set and Clear a Default App
In Android, you can place a file to open with a definite program by default as you do in Windows. I.e. if you have installed an image viewer such as QuickPic, the system may ask you to choose an app when you try to open an image file.To set an application as default to open the file, check ‘Use by default for this action’ before you tap that app.
The next time when you will tap an image file, it will always open with the app you’ve chosen without asking for your permission again.
- What if you need to clear the default app?
Run the Settings app and tap Apps under DEVICE.
Choose the app you do not want to launch by default.
Tap ‘Clear defaults’ under LAUNCH BY DEFAULT.
