Same here with S20. I've turned off Show Recent Apps & turned recent ones on in my edge panel but of course still have the zrecents button reflex which can't be unlearned overnight. There are a lot of threads complaining about this & one said the devs said it would be fixed "in a future update". I replied that it had better be the *next* update & am continuing to post on every thread I find to be sure they know how much demand there is to restore the previous function. Unchangeable recommendations for apos you don't use and don't intend to are really just advertising.
This is the most helpful suggestion yet - thank you!
Flip users won't like it, because the edges of our screens are already dead zones. pulling out those side trays already feels like it only happens when i don't want it.
I miss the recent apps in the app switcher that is access by tapping the hamburger.
