    My old Tab 2 and my Galaxy S5 Mini both have one button you can press that will list all running apps. This allows me to do 2 things:

    1. Switch quickly between apps I'm currently using.
    2. Easily close all running apps with one press of a button

    How do I do the same on my Note 10.1 2014?

    The help screen says to swipe from the right of the screen, but this merely opens a menu of seemingly randomly-selected apps, not the apps that are currently open. Also this menu appears to offer no way of closing all running apps.

    Welcome to the forum

    I'm not all that familiar with the Note but I imagine it should be a long press of the hardware home button. Is that not working?

    Thanks Leeshor, that's done it! So the new Note 2014 works the same way as my old Ace 2 phone ...

    How do I add apps to the menu that appears when I swipe from the right of the screen? The 'Edit' option only lists a small subset of all the apps I have installed.

    Not all apps were designed to work with that menu so any that weren't won;t be available. It's an app developer issue.
