On my SG3 there is a button to close all open apps when your are Ayr the switching screen. I don't see one on this.

I've never had anything but blackberries so this is a learning curve but it seems like either the back button or the home button will take you to where you want to go next, however that leaves the apps running. So if I'm in an app I can hit the left button at the bottom to open recent apps and then flick left or right to close it but that's a pain in the *** to do every time I use an app.
i'm new to Android OS and i just bought the new LG G3.
i would like to ask how to close apps that are open in the backround?
i was told its a long press on the home button, but that sends me to google search.
couldn't find the answer on any forum for this.
will appriatiate the help :-)
I play a lot of games on my sam galaxy 3. My daughter walks up hits a button and it will sho w everygame I had just played. And she says I tokd you to close these out when ur done. Th she slides them off. Where is she finding this button????? I figured when I change game the app would close itself . Guess not.
So all of the sudden, a long press of the home button won't give me the option to restart, or turn off the phone. And now, apps stay open, and won't close with the press of the home button. The only way to close them it to double tap the home button, and swipe them closed that way. Or hit the back button until I get back to the home menu.
Coming from the Original EVO 4G 1 day into this phone i am missing that menu button, most especially for closing apps. like when i'm browsing and i dont want to hi the back button 40+ times to close the browser.
In desktop it shows a "close" button. but when i run on android device (tablet) it doesn’t show the close button.
Swiping to close each app all the time is inefficient for me. I realize other people might not want this but I want whatever app I was using to completely close when I tap the home button. There is one app that puts an X on your homescreen that closes everything when clicked. That is a little better but I want to go one step further and have the home button do the same thing.
