Hello. ive recently upgraded my phone to a Galaxy J1 Ace.


in my old phone, I opened a few programes & then closed them - but found out later that the programmes were still running...




Is there a way in the galaxy, to say - if i have not used a file/progamme within the last 15 minutes, to CLOSE that progamme (freeing up memory for other apps)

Android manages that quite well for you. Since (I think) KitKat. You won't run out of memory. Even if they show on the previous apps list, it doesn't mean they're actually consuming resources. You can open the previous apps list and clear the lot out if you wish, but no need.

Keep calm, and carry on posting.
