Leave an app or close an app
Instead of closing an app when you're done using it, you can make multitasking easier by minimizing an app. You can see your open apps arranged as Active Frames on the home screen, and you can tap an Active Frame to return the app to full screen. Once you minimize an app, you can close it from the home screen.
- To minimize an app, swipe up from the bottom of the screen. The app is arranged as an Active Frame on the home screen.

Tip: You can also minimize an app by pressing until the app is minimized. Once the app is minimized, you can highlight it on the home screen and press again to close the app.
