Navigating applications

You can navigate between applications using the navigation keys, the favourites bar,

and the recently used applications window, which lets you switch easily between all

recently used applications. The navigation keys are the Home key, the Recent apps

key and the Back key. Some applications get closed when you press the Home key

to exit while others are paused or continue to run in the background. If an

application is paused or running in the background, you can continue where you left

off the next time you open the application.
