Can Someone Help An Old Man With A Noob Question?

Technology has long passed me by, so please help me out. I've done a lot of reading but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere myself. How do you get the dropdown menu on the taskbar? Is there a way of getting it without putting a new rom on it?

I have a stock TP2 on Sprint.

Thank you very much!

Re: Can Someone Help An Old Man With A Noob Question?

Sorry for not being clear.



I'm interested in getting an active program dropdown menu that is in the upper right hand corner. It's a pain in the bum to go to the task manager all the time, but from my searching, I haven't found a cab to do this.

Do I need a rom to do this? I don't think I'm ready to do that to my phone.

Obviously, me and you speak different languages, since I am an old noob who doesn't know proper lingo. I think what you are saying is what I'm looking for.

I see all these pictures of it, but have no idea what it's called.

Thank you, but that doesn't seem to work. I get a bunch of files, and the only thing executable is an xml file that does nothing.
