    Disabling recent tabs

    Hi there,

    Is there any way to disable the home screen displaying recently opened apps and tabs?
    I'm not a huge fan of this feature.

    Thanks very much,
    Michael.

    Do you mean the side panel that shows your recent activity? The xoom/android was made for multitasking. Why would you want to make it an ipad?

    Well I didn't want to have an ipad, but i just find this unuseful. When i want to listen to music, I like to just open the music button and so on with other things.

    On another note, i'm finding pictures are not showing very clear on the xoom as they do on my computer, i'm a little dissapointed at this.
    I thought the HD screen capabilities would be much better.
    Don't mean to bitch, but i'm on the fence about my purchase.
    Thanks.

    There is nothing useless with the recent activity pop up window. It makes for easy transitions between tasks. Just put the music app on the homescreen for easy access. Are you talking about the side panel that pops up on the lower left side of the xoom?

    What pics are you viewing that don't look well? If you have an hd lcd pc screen then obviously the resolution is alot higher so pics will he clearer. I have no issues though.

    Hello. Yes, I meant the pop ups from the bottom left. I was just wondering if that could be disabled.

    And as for pics, they have been taken with a nikon dslr camera and look a bit blurry on xoom which is very odd
    Thanks

    Download a different picture viewer from the market. I think quickpic is one of them. The default viewer leaves a lot to be desired.
