    Question Alt+ Esc list of programs

    Advertisement



    Hi there,
    Is there a way to remove program icons from the "Switch application" or when I press Alt+Esc?
    I've bunch there including PTT, BB Messenger, Browser, BeamBerry, Messages
    and few others that never seem to go away even if I pick "Close" in their main menus.

    Also, does it mean that all those programs are running in the background?

    Last question.
    Can I add shortcuts to programs to use it as a launcher? :-)

    Big thanks!

    If they stay open when you "close" them, they're going to run in the background all the time. (phone, messages, messenger, home screen, browser) are the ones that run on my bb from tmo. I imagine Ptt will stay up too if that's an active function on your device. to launch programs from this list, just open it once and leave it running. that will cost you memory though...

    ok, but how to shut them down completely, meaning, have them not running in the background?

    I'd think that "Close" from the main menu would do that, but the only thing it does, it pushes it to the background.
    BTW, I did remove the battery and still no help. It's almost like they'd be in some kind of Autostart folder...

    Thanks!
