Windows Mobile 10 Questions . . .

Recommended Posts

margrave    1,522

I just upgraded my 1320 to Windows Mobile 10, and I have a couple questions.

 

When I use the back arrow to leave an app it's not always closing it. It leaves lots just running in the background for me to go close manually. Is this behavior a bug of the build I installed, or some new behavior of the system?

 

Also I can't seem to find a way to customize the system sounds. I found how to get a new mail sound to play, but I can't find how to change it. Is it not possible at this point?

 

Thanks for reading.

Hey margrave!

Using the 'back' button shouldn't close the apps. ;)

What happens, if the app is coded correctly, when an app goes into the 'background' it goes into a sort-of hibernation mode, using far-less, if any, resources. Once you open it up again, it 'resumes' to its previous state.

Now, if an app does stay running, hold your finger on the back button, then pull the app down, to close it.

How do you see what apps are currently running?

As @Jack W said, tap and hold the back button and you can then see all the apps that are running.

 

To see what apps are permitted to run in the background, got to settings, tap on System > Battery saver > battery use > change background app setings.

Thanks! :)

 

Is there a way to get the wallpaper/start background to cycle thru images in a folder?
