We have had the recent uninspired idea to let a SmartPhone upgrade itself to the "Pie" Version of the "Google" "Android" Operating System.

The "_Software Information_" Pane

Now, although everything went smoothly, we have discovered to our utter amazement that we are no longer able to close a Mobile Software Application at once. We are able only to close all of the running Mobile Software Applications at once.

The "_Close All_" Pane

No matter how much we have been searching so far, there is no obvious individual "Close" Button for each Mobile Software Application in this Latest Version.

Does anybody know how to close them individually, in a gentle way? We are not referring to any Forced Closures by means of terminating them.

As mentioned in the comments the way to close individual apps in the Samsung One UI is to simply "swipe" that app away.

The two gestures I have here are swiping up on the app to close it or swiping down to maximise it.
