    On my Samsung Galaxy tablet, shows all recent apps when I press there are three, big lines in the bottom of my tablet. Vs. On the Same ADW launcher on my moto edge plus, all I got is the default big line, wich does not have a recent function that makes me close all running backgrounds, hate to re download a different launcher so I can just set it up and can take me a spell..


    Anywyas, where is the function of setting up three lines on the bottom of the adw for moto edge plus?

    Can you explain what these "three big lines" are, or post a screenshot? I can't picture what it is.

    If it's something to do with the dock then it will be an ADW setting. @MoodyBlues is our ADW expert.

    If it's the navigation bar that's a system setting, and nothing to do with the launcher. Some devices have options for navigation (e.g. my Pixel offers the Android 10 "gesture" navigation, the Android 9 "pill" or the Android 8 "3 buttons"), some do not.

    Thanks for the confidence, @Hadron! I'm not sure I'd label myself an expert, just an enthusiastic user. :) Anyway...

    Milo, I have NO EARTHLY IDEA what you're talking about! :eek: Please post pics, and explain EXACTLY what you do that leads up to this... *SMH*

    Screen shot of my apps on my droid edge, it only has one button on the bottom. I cannot swipe it for the minature size so I can view them, like on the moto launcher though.

    Ok, this is nothing to do with the launcher.

    The Droid has the Android 10 gesture navigation: swipe up on that bar to return to home, swipe and hold to get the recent apps overview. It's a bit clunky, though slightly better tuned in Android 11, but Google have decided this is the future (the Android 9 navigation was faster and more reliable, but it didn't look like an iPhone so Google switched to this. No, I'm not joking).

    The 3 bars thing is a custom gesture navigation from Samsung. Because it's a Samsung thing you cannot get it on the Droid.

    This is all system stuff, not launcher features. When Android 10 was first released the gesture navigation didn't work with third party launchers, but that was fixed months ago. It might be worth looking in your system settings though to see whether you have any other options, e.g. the traditional 3 buttons (Settings, System, Gestures, System Navigation is where you find it in stock android 10 or 11).

    Milo, on my Motorola One Hyper, running Android 10 with ADW as its launcher, my navigation buttons are as they always were: back, home, recents.

    When I set it up, I went here--which is exactly what @Hadron described:

    System Settings | System | Gestures | System Navigation

    and chose this:

    Do the same, and you should have the traditional 3-button navigation.
