    1.- I have a tv box and I installed ES Explorer. How do I exit the app ?! There's no exit button.
    2.- How do I switch from one open app to another without exiting them? In a phone there's a task manager and you can switch/terminate from there but how do you do this in a TV box with a remote or airmouse ?

    Welcome to Android Central! Android apps generally don't have a "Close" or "Exit" button, because they aren't needed. When you switch out of an app (by either tapping Back, Home, or Recent Apps an selecting another app), the app you were in gets cached in the background. It may or may not remain open in RAM in a paused state (so that the user can switch back to it quickly if needed), but if the system ends up needing more RAM for another process, it will automatically choose an app to close out of RAM.

    Basically, in Android, don't worry about closing apps out of RAM -- let the system take care of it.

    He was also asking how to switch between apps in a tv box, not a phone. Does anyone know ?

    Actually I just found out: Press Alt-Tab with a keyboard to navigate/close open apps
