E71 Tip: Hold Down Home/Menu Key To View Open Applications & Multitask
Posted by Mike Macias
This one is for the beginners. I've had a few emails over the recent days asking me how to see open applications and tasks. It's really one of the most simple shortcuts on the Nokia E71.
To multitask and switch through open applications simply hold down the Home key aka the Menu key on your E71 for a few seconds. This will bring up a list of all the running applications. You'll sometimes notice that the Contacts, Log, or Gallery is open all the time. This really isn't a big deal as those system tasks hardly use any RAM, but you can also close them completely if you'd like to.
To close an application in the task viewer just push the "C" or "delete" button and the application or task will close.
Nokia has made a short tutorial video covering this on the Nokia N95. It works exactly the same on the E71...
I know that I have covered this and other various shortcuts for the Nokia E71 in the past but sometimes people need a refresher and also there are a ton of new readers here at the blog. Stay tuned for more application reviews and tips for the Nokia E71 in the coming days.
