I am trying to map my Recent Apps to a gesture, instead of home button long-press. However, I can't seem to find the location of the Recent Apps function. Before Lollipop I think I found in Activities > Settings; now I don't see it anywhere there. Anyone know perchance where Recent Apps is located?

I'm using Android 5.0.1 on a Samsung Galaxy s4.

    Which launcher are you using? I think this may be launcher dependent, but I can't be sure – 1990clb Dec 3 '15 at 20:29

    Also, what's your device model and Android version? There's never such setting on vanilla Android (Nexus 4~5, KitKat~Marshmallow). – Andrew T. Dec 4 '15 at 1:06
  • @1990clb The launcher is Lightning Launcher. I used to use Nova for a while, I think both Nova and LL used to have Recent Apps in the same place, in the Activities > Settings section. – Misha R Dec 4 '15 at 5:13
  • @AndrewT. It's a Samsung Galaxy s4. The Android version is 5.0.1 (Lollipop). – Misha R Dec 4 '15 at 5:14
