BB10 Simulator - can't exit the browser

I'm done testing my website. It's not that I *need* to return to the homescreen, it's just that I can't find how to do it. None of the buttons on my physical keyboard do that (I assume at least one might emulator a button on a real device that returns to the homescreen, bad sadly not), and the browser doesn't have an option to exit it. Furthermore there's no statusbar anywhere (like on Android) that has at least something, so I feel I'm "stuck" in the browser...

 

How to return home?

Swipe gesture up from just below the bottom of the simulated device LCD.

Aha! I never would have guessed. Very odd to require remembering gestures for elementary actions... Anyway, thanks.

Not odd - that's the way the BB10 interface works.

 

I haven't used the emulator in a while so I don't recall whether the emulator image includes the help and tutorials apps, but if it does, you can get help w/the BB10 user interface there, or online here, for example.

Most users if they use their browser enough will know to do this as it comes up with a notification message whenever something needs to go full screen.


If you've been helped click on Like Button, if you've been saved buy the app. Smiley Happy

Calling something not odd because it's just the way it works... That means nothing in the world is odd.

 

Anyway, "odd" is my opinion, so you can disagree if you want Smiley Wink
