    How to Switch Between Apps on your Windows 10 Mobile Phone

    information   Information
    Many apps can run at the same time on your Windows 10 Mobile phone, and there's an easy way to switch between the apps you've used most recently. Swipe between them and tap one to resume progress where you left off, or close the app. Your Windows Phone remembers it all for you.

    This tutorial will show you how to switch between apps that you have used most recently on your Windows 10 Mobile phone.

    Note   Note
    There's a limit to how many apps your phone can remember at one time, which depends on your phone model and memory. When you hit the limit, apps you haven't used for a while will no longer appear in the App switcher.

    Thanks! I didn't know this, and was kind of annoyed that I couldn't find any way to manage the apps...
