    Can we make extra folders to add to any screen? I use to be able to do this on my note 3..And is there a task manager? I use to be able to push the home middle button and that would close all the apps and take me to my ram that I was able to clean . Now the left button only closes all the apps and allows you to open up two apps at the same time. So far the phone has been great. Thanks for the help \m/

    Drag one icon onto another. It will put them both into a folder, which you can name. The folder will continue to exist as long as you keep at least two items in it. You can drag and drop items to/from it at will. A bit of a work-around, sure, but it works.

    According to this, Verizon disabled the system management stuff.

    You don't need it. Android runs far better with the RAM full. Let the OS do its job.

    Empty RAM us wasted RAM.

    This is android not Windows.

    isn't the task manager where you tap the left button and it pulls up all your running apps? then you can shut off select apps or all apps?

    Of course you don't want anyone looking at your Private Phone...Its not a Public Pay Phone its a Private Phone. Also clearing your RAM is good because there are several Apps out there that are VERY resource intensive and some that are running in the background collecting data in regards to your surfing habits. So having the choice to stop or close a program is your right.. don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    No, clearing your RAM is not good. It is counterproductive to Android. Android likes it when the RAM is full, it operates much better on a full RAM. It is the opposite of a computer.

    Now you can close all apps. Pressing on your left button should bring up all your open apps. You can choose to close all or just close some.

    Closing apps and clearing RAM are two different things though.
