How to switch between open apps on an Android box

Found 23rd Oct 2017
On an Android phone you can hold down a button to scroll through open apps.
Not sure how to do this on an Android box.
For instance, if I want to switch between Kodi and Plex.
I can press the home icon on the remote, but not sure how to get back to the previous app which is still running somewhere in the background out of sight.

Does the box your using have a menu bar at the bottom of the screen? Not all boxes have this facility, it depends on the firmware installed on the box.

If it does, then you need to click on the square box icon on the menu bar and it will display all the apps currently open.
Just press the home key then go to the app you want

They do all pile up in the background over time so I run a kill all app to clear memory and restarting at least weekly is a good idea.…ler
