And if you want access to your recently opened Apps or the Task Manager and Google Now, simply press & hold on the hardware Menu button beneath the screen.

For some reason holding my back button no longer brings up that quick launch menu.

And also, is it a quick launch menu or a multi window app list? Because I could not figure out how to place apps in this menu Even after pressing edit. (that is when I was able to access this menu)

Anyone know how to bring this quick menu up when holding the back key doesnt do it?
Thanks

Ok I found it. Swipe down- click upper right to show all quick settings then click "multi window". But as I said i guess this is only for apps that supports multi window and most apps do not.

To clarify, multi-window jas to be enabled via settings or the notification area for the 'long press back button' to work. If multi-window is disabled, the back button won't have any effect.
