Default question

Please Login to Remove!

This might be the easiest question but it is frustrating me. Can the button under the track wheel always close the current window? Is there a setting to make this the "back" button.

7250 on Verizon

Thanks.

I am not sure what you are asking. On my BB (on all BBs) the "Escape" key beneath the trackwheel is the back button/close window button.

What are you looking for?

You can't reprogram per se, however the [Esc] button IS the "Back" button for the browsers. Unfortunately it does double duty. If you press and hold, it's "Exit" for the browser. If you hit it quickly, it will go back. I find turning on Prompt on Close in the Browser under Options --> General helps alleviate this problem.

or if you hold the ESC key then it will go to home screen and still keep the application running and will not close

Not quite. The browser engine is always running, but ESC exits the current session.

However, if you hold down Alt/ and hit ESC, a task list will come up, at which point you can let go of ESC and scroll through the running apps and switch to one of them. This WILL leave the browser session open, so that when you go back to the same browser either through the menu or the task list, you will still be on the page you left it at.
