I just got a Samsung S5 and it has a physical Back, Home and Task Manager button. No settings button ... some apps I use do not have a settings button (I guess it sees the physical buttons and assumes settings is one of them). Is there any way to accessing app settings? Maybe a gesture I'm missing?

  • I don't think, apps depending on button type (physical or virtaul) change their UI. Apr 14 '14 at 18:37
  • Are you talking about a menu button? It's usually labelled with three dots (or two or four horizontal lines) and brings up a pop-up menu of actions? I only ask to make it easier for other visitors to find your question.

  • A little bit of search reveals this button is the "Action Overflow" button. Generally three dots, or three dash... sometimes referred too as the Hamburger Button. And @AfzaalAhmadZeeshan apps totally change which buttons they display depending on which physical buttons exist... some better than others though.

Hold down the Task Manager button and it will show the application menu.
