So my phone fell and the lower left corner is the most affected area... Because of that i can't access the recently used apps screen to easily switch to different apps and close apps i just want to know if there is an alternate way to access the recent apps screen???

Welcome to the forums. I think your best option is using a custom launcher, like Nova, or any other app that let you create a widget to open the recent apps.

I know there are a few apps that can remap buttons or add additional functions. Don't remember the app name but I had one on my Note 4 that allowed me to set up a double tap function on my home and capacitive buttons. I used it to open the camera but an app like that should give you what you need.

Or another option.

Open settings, accessibility, dexterity and interaction, enable assistant menu.

It gives a floating icon that gives you a number of ways to control the phone, recent apps is in it. I just tested this on my Verizon S7 with Oreo.

Closing apps is easy - use the back button when you're in the app.

Recently used apps? If the launcher rotates, turn the phone around.
