    Is there an alt-enter equivalent when using the NC? If I'm surfing and I see a mail notification its easy enough to check the mail by tapping the notification. But now, if I want to go back to the browser I have to go back to the home screen (the n key) and reopen my browser. This seems a "clunky" way of doing it.

    The back arrow works in many cases. Just back arrow out of you email and you should find youself in the browser or whatever app you were in.

    if you have tt.rc2 or nightly 37 on cm7, all you have to do is long press the home soft key an your last 8 tasks are displayed - easy to switch between them

    Not sure about rooted stock but on most of the other ROMs if you long press the N button it will show the most recent apps. Very handy and I use it all the time. As well there is an app called Dock 4 Droid Lifehacker, tips and downloads for getting things done that provides similar functionality.

    Depends on the home launcher. Zeam willdo it.

    CORRECTION: Its not zeam but softkeys that does it.

    You can do it with just a rooted nook if you set up SoftKeys properly. I am assuming you used AutoNooter, which I am pretty sure installs SoftKeys automatically. Go into the SoftKeys settings and change what the long press home does. Its been awhile since I set that up, so I don't remember the exact menus.

    can't you just tap the gmail notification in the task bar, tap the displayed message and won't that open the gmail application?

    Yup, sure can. It's the going back to the browser that's the issue.

    Thanks for the replies team. I do have Softkeys installed so I'll have a look at that.
