    hi, I bought my eee asus transformer tablet 16GB (honeycomb) recently. I have a question regarding the navigation aids. I was trying to
    delete the history from the "double rectangular" navigation aid. However I cannot find a way to delete history from there. Does anyone
    know how to delete history from the navigation aid? Thank you.

    What is the "Double Rectangular" navigation aid? Did you download an app that you are asking about?

    Hi mda, welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new transformer. Nice to have you as a member of the forum. I'm moving your thread over to the Asus Tablets section to see if anyone can help get rid of that history. Good luck!

    You are referring to the "Recent Apps" list.

    The only way to clear this is to reboot your Transformer.

    Keep in mind, this is not a list of Running Apps (some of them may be, but not all) and this is Recent Apps for quick navigation.

    Android closes apps to free up memory so you do not have to. It will keep open what it can until it runs out of resources. This is quite different from a Windows or Mac system that the user needs to manage this.

    Even going into settings and force closing all of your apps will not clear the list, only a reboot.
