Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Viewing Recently Used Apps:
To quickly view recently used apps, touch the icon in the lower-left corner of the Home screen. This function displays thumbnails of recently opened apps. To navigate to one of these apps, touch its thumbnail. To remove an app from the list, swipe the thumbnail to the right or left.
Taking a Screenshot:
Take a screenshot without having to remember complex key combinations by touching the Screenshot icon in the System Bar. Screenshots are available for viewing in the Gallery.
Set Data Limits:
Worried about exceeding your data limit for the month? The Data Usage Panel lets you set both a data usage warning that alerts you when you’re approaching a limit and a data limit that automatically disables data use when you’ve reached the pre-set limit. To set and adjust these options, go to Settings > More settings > Data Usage.
Making a Video to Share:
The Limit for Email feature helps you record a video that’s the right size for sending in an email. While in the camcorder, touch Recording Mode on the toolbar and choose Limit for Email.
AllShare® Play is perfect for sharing any user-generated content like your vacation videos, the latest song from your garage band, or photos from your family reunion. AllShare Play does not support DRM-protected content.

To turn on Incognito while in the web browser, touch the icon and then choose New Incognito Tab.
