I am still working through Clifford D. Simak.  Currently Earth for Inspiration, one of a series of collections of his short works.

I had a similarly frustrating issue with the Moto phone I just got rid of. No matter how many Apps were listed the close all button didn't show up until I got down to the last one.

Interesting, my Moto G5+ shows CLEAR ALL at the top of the list all the time, unfortunately because the most recent are always shown at the bottom you need to scroll to the top to see it.

@Miles: Old Tesco HUDL v1 with Android 4.2.2 can only clear one at a time here.

You can add a Clear All function but it'll require root and the Xposed framework.

i tried a few of the one click root without PC apps and none of them succeeded.  At this point I think I will just live with it.

Speaking of Moto phone my free service will crap out soon.  Supposedly Metro supplies the e 5 plus for free with the $50/month plan.  If that is true I may go for it.  With 3 GB of Ram it must run better than my current phone.

btw thank you both for replying.   :Thmbsup:

The frustrating bit for me is the thing saves the list across boots.

That's actually one thing that I love.  I don't lose an app unless I explicitly close it.

My tablets all have 1 GB or less of Ram.  I would not mind if it saved the list if it was optional or I could close them all with one shot.  The repetitive swiping is wicked lame.

On older Android versions I used to use Advanced Task Killer (by Rechild, couldn't find it in the Play Store anymore) to kill off unused programs, but I started it manually only, as I didn't want it to kill apps 'under my fingers'. I think I stopped using that around Android 5 or 6, but it should still work on those versions. AFAICS, killing an app is the only way to close it's (remaining) views.

To kill a bunch of background apps I use RamBooster.  But in this case I am just trying to get rid of the windows without developing some kind of chronic thumb injury.  8)
