    Default Apps running in the background?

    So in 4.1.2 we could limit the number of apps running in the background and tell the OS to shut down any app we closed, where do I find that in 4.3? I've had an stock version of 4.3 for a week and still haven't found that option again it used to be under developer tools I think. Any help would be appreciated thx

    Or is there a way to revert back to 4.1.2? I'm 100% stock

    I know/knew about that option but in 4.1.2 I cold tell it to limit the number of programs /apps running in the background (normal, 3 or less, 2 or less etc) I was wondering if they took that out or if I'm just missing it somewhere and should feel a bit dumb :-P

    It's still in the developers options, hit the more tab, then developer options and scroll to the bottom... Unless you don't have developer options activated you won't see it... Go to about phone then status then in the build number keep pressing until you get the message that developer options have been enabled...

    I tried to attach a pic but my "more" menu doesn't include developer options, that's why I was asking. :-( thanks for the help though.

    Go to settings>more>about device>tap build number about 6 ot 7 times and it will turn on developer options after that you'll find it under the more tab.
