    Why would you want it disabled? I actually like that feature and use it often.

    Maybe he doesn't, but it could be fixed by not holding the home button in the first place. You only need to press it once to get around

    adamant117, I would just encourage you to try using that feature a few times to switch apps, and see if it turns out to be useful. It is built into the operating system, and as has been said here, you can't remove it without rooting the phone. You just need to get used to doing a quick press to get to the Home screen. But try using the recent-app list, on which you can also swipe an app to the left to stop it or long-press it to get to the Application manager info for it.
