iPhone4 w latest iOS:

 

Double clicking the button on the bottom of the iPhone gets me ANY of three different screens:

 

Active Apps

Keyboard

Home

 

It's driving me kookoo. Is there a way to do a click and get running apps bar ONLY?

Or is there some other way to set up the Running apps bar alone in one maneuver?

    maybe its the speed with which you are clicking? because if your double tapping and its taking you to your home page...what are you doing like 1 tap per minute?

    I've tried slow, medium, fast clicking and I have never gotten the same screen consistantly.

     

    Does anyone know a way to fix a certain click to one action? I only want the Active Apps window to show and I am constantly not receiving it because the STUPID keyboard or homescreen comes up.

    try these-

     

    restart phone (slide to power off, power back on)

     

    reset all settings

     

    settings>general>reset>reset all settings

    You might want to read the manual; it can be very enlightening.

     

    Press once: If it isn't on page 1 of the home screen it will go to the home screen. If it is already on page 1 of the home screen it will go to the Search screen (that's the one with the keyboard). If it's on the Search screen it will go to the Home screen.

     

    Press twice quickly: It will always open the Quick Launch ribbon (those aren't running apps, they are apps that you have used recently).

     

    That's the only things that happen. Pressing twice slowly while on the Home screen will go to the Search screen, then back to the Home screen. It's really just a combination of Press once, but repeated. Likewise, pressing twice slowly while not on Page 1 of the Home screen will go first to the Home screen, then to the Search screen.

    Why? The phone is working exactly as it was designed to work.

    "Press twice quickly: It will always open the Quick Launch ribbon (those aren't running apps, they are apps that you have used recently)."

     

    I said if I click twice I get either of three screens:

     

    Home

    Active Apps

    Keyboard

     

    Any of these three show, in any order, at any time.

    That is driving me kookoo.

     

    I only want Active Apps to show up.

    Why is that an impossible manuever?????

    Don't forget triple-click home.

  • bhazel Level 4 Level 4

    rrestore the phone as new

    ah ok well with 5.1.1 if you double clicked it opened all running apps.

    It does with 6.x also if you double-click fast enough.

    You aren't clicking fast enough. If you click fast enough you will get the Quick Launch bar. There is no such thing as Active Apps.

    ok so OP needs to change his verbage from active apps to running apps

    I have tried clicking:

     

    SLOW

    MODERATELY

    FAST

     

    I get any of three windows:

     

    Keyboard (which occurs mostly)

    Home

    Active Apps(Or whatever you want to call it)

     

    Is there ONE way to SET one action to get the Active Apps bar?

    As I've said several times, and I won't repeat again, you must click twice very fast. Your "fast" isn't fast enough.
