Alt+F4 for S60 applications

Hi guys,

is there any common key stroke for usually quitting Symbian applications?
Sth. like Alt+F4 on Windows?
It's quite annoying to search for the different exits in every app.

And is there a key stroke for quitting all active applications at once?

Best Regards

There is no such convenience that I know of, but you may consider the following:

1-) The exit option is usually the lowest in the options menus, so you can hit left selection key, press up key once and hit middle selection key.

2-) Most apps will close if you hit the end call key.

3-) If you need to immediately hide the application that is currently active, you may press the menu or end call key.

4-) If you press and hold down the menu key, a list of all open programs will pop-up, there, you can scroll to any application and switch to it by pressing midde selection key or close the application using clear key.

I hope this was useful.


alt, applications, s60
