Switch Task Trigger screenRNS:: logo

"Switch Task trigger" is the action that you perform to switch between two most recently used tasks. This behavior is similar to pressing Alt+Tab on the desktop computer. If you want to use this feature, you must set it up so as to instruct Hi-Launcher when to switch tasks.

There are two different ways in which you can trigger the Menu:

  • Hard button press
    Use this option to select a hard button that will switch tasks.
  • Screen gesture
    Use this option to define a straight-line pen stroke that will switch tasks.
HintsRNS:: logo

Programs listed under Exceptions > Exclude are ignored by this trigger, that is: you cannot switch to them, and using the trigger takes you to the next available running application.

This trigger (as well as the Menu trigger) is automatically disabled while any program listed under Exceptions > Disable is running in the foreground.

You cannot assign the Start button tap trigger to the Switch Task command. We recommend using the Screen gesture trigger, with a gesture originating from the top-right corner of the screen (where the OK or X button is located), and drawn either to the left, down, or diagonally.

If both Menu and Switch Task triggers are assigned to the same button or gesture, the Menu trigger takes precedence. Normally you should not set the same trigger to both commands. You may, however, combine normal and press-and-hold only options using one hard button.
