Hi, press the 'Recent Apps Burton' and when cards appear turn phone from portrait to landscape (physicaly). The '3 dots appear at right hand corner. You can then change to "Grid View" in settings.

I really hate the new 'Recent apps'-list of 5.0. I cannot change this to the old grid-layout (No 3-dot icon). Is this due to my m8 not being an dev. edition? Do you know if the change can be made through the general settings? Any help will be appriciated

Hi, I just checked the option on an unlocked device. and the 3dot icon was at the top right of the screen. Make sure you first go to the Recent Apps view and then look for the icon

I looked in to the settings and couldn't find any setting to change the layout from there.
