    So this is what happens when Samsung keeps a menu button on their devices long after Google had killed it off and then remove it one day to adhere to Android design? And there's no software buttons so there's no visual cue as to when there might be a menu in an app that hasn't updated to modern guidelines? This is what, a couple years old now this no menu button? If your favorite app hasn't updated yet you might want to contact the developer or even find a replacement app that is better supported.

    Long Press the Recent Apps button to get a settings menu is what they're referring to. As far as disabling Google Now, that can be done in Settings.

    When I went to the S5 from the S4 the change bothered me, but going from the S5 to the Note 4 I have actually forgot that it changed. Long pressing was what I thought it always was.

    Posted from my Note 4 baby.

    Where? I have looked all over for this, without finding it.
    Also, what would be the alternative use for long press of "home"? ISTR reading somewhere that one could close the current app (instead of just sending it to background) with a long press of the home key. This would be a lot more useful to me than Google Now, but I can't find the reference any more.

    with regards to changing the home key long press function: see this App link for an option https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...shortcut&hl=en

    Double tap on the left side (Option) of the Home Button. The right side is the go back/previous button. I was frustrated with this new Note 4 and after long searching for this I found it by trying so many things.

    For those who have become accustomed to the Note 3 long press to show recent apps, (I have too) and recently purchased a Note 4, I have a simple solution. This link will take you to the application on Google play: Swipe up Utility. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...swipeuputility
    This app allows you to change this uncomfortable 'Google Now' feature and replace it with the good old long press recent apps feature that I have grown to like.
    I hope this helped.

    Pressing the recent apps button 10mm away is too difficult?
