    closing programs

    Advertisement



    Hi, this is my first post here. This site is awesome. I just got rid of my Q and got an 8703e. I was wondering if there is any way to see a list of programs or apps running on my phone. On the Q, I could go to task manager and close the programs that were running. Is there a way to do the same thing on my BB? Thanks

    Welcome to the Stacks Ianmoss. Hold down Alt+Escape to see the list of running programs.

    That shows messages, browswer, homescreen and phone. I opened another program and it didn't show up when pressing alt+esc. Plus I can't close anything from there. Thank you for your fast response and thanks for the welcome.

    Just be aware that there are several apps that will always run in the background.

    As Takeshi said, there are some you can't close. In order to close, you have to scroll to the open program while holding the buttons and then release when you are over the program you want to close. It will bring up the program and then you can close it.
