Re: why doesent x close anything

this might sound like a stupid answer but did you go to the settings and change it so x closes instead of minimizes.

Re: why doesent x close anything

ive got it set to close when you press and hold x for a few seconds.
and i just checked my custoom rom tp2 and my gfs stock tp2.it found in the systrm settings under taskmanager, or if you have the little dropdown arrow where the "x" would normally be, just drop it down and hit the little wrench icon.

Re: why doesent x close anything

I didn't think you could do it without a 3rd party app. but then I havn't run a stock rom in 6 months ...

Currently I use Xtask, check it on XDA. Its a task manage and X close app.

thanks krizz...in doing what u said, my settings are as u said...i guess my MAIN issue is that when i click the 'x' in opera, i often times find that it is still running...the only way i feel that opera is truly not running is by clicking the 'thingy' on the far right bottom corner and then clicking on exit, and then when i get the msg that asks 'do u want to exit opera' i click 'yes'...seems to me that it should just end by pushing on the 'x' in the FIRST place!
