active applications list

Hello,

 

I was wondering if anyone knows a way to view a list of active applications?

Re: active applications list

Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

Alt escape key will show you the list. Four will always be listed:

Browser, messages, call logs, home.

 

Thanks,

What he might mean, and what I also am wondering about, is if there's a way to see which applications are running in the background.  I'd like to know so I can ensure there are no apps running in the background which lead to a faster battery drain.  Thanks so much.

Re: active applications list

Maybe I wasn't specific, the four I referred to will always be active, that is the BB design.

The alt escape keys will show you ALL applications open at that time.

I by default did not mean to imply that they were the only ones that would display.

Does that make better sense?

Thanks,
