Preventing accidental app closures on One UI for Galaxy users

What you should know

– On some Galaxy phones with One UI, you can lock an open app so that it isn’t accidentally shut.
– Closing recent apps won’t improve battery life.
Apple suggests that unless an app is “misbehaving” and not working right, or if it is consuming too much battery power, there is no reason to close it.

Full Story

Hey Android users, have you ever accidentally closed an app while swiping through your open apps? It can be so frustrating! But fear not, there’s a way to prevent this from happening by using a feature available on the One UI interface used on many Samsung Galaxy phones. You can keep certain apps open even when you press the “Close all” button.

Here’s how it works: simply open the Recent Apps screen, tap on the app icon above the app you want to keep open, and select “Keep open” from the list of options. Once you do this, a message will appear at the bottom of the display saying “app kept open for quick launching” and a lock icon will appear on the lower-right corner of the app in Recent Apps.

Using this feature, the app you’ve selected to lock can be quickly and easily accessed and won’t be shut even if you press on the “Close all” button. If you want to unlock the app, you just need to press the lock icon that appears with the app.

This feature is perfect for preventing accidental app closures and makes it easy to access your frequently used apps. It’s a handy trick that can be so helpful for many Android users. And remember, just because you have the option to close all open apps doesn’t mean it’s necessary. Both Apple and Samsung suggest that unless an app is misbehaving or consuming too much battery power, there’s no reason to close it. So, next time you’re swiping through your open apps, remember this helpful tip to keep certain apps open no matter what!
