Question [Q] How to change "on-the-spot" settings?

Hi,

I am using Paranoid 4.4 RC2 and I have set some preferences through on-the-spot settings (just answering the questions I was asked). I would now like to change some of these choices I made. Where/how can I do that? I do not find any settings corresponding to the quesions I was asked...

To be more precise, I'd like to know, how:
  • to disable the "clear all recent apps" button.
  • to change QuickSettings

The change log thread covers this option if you read it.

Thanks, that's what I wanted to know. I would have never looked there without your hint.

Okay. Please don't get me wrong (I don't want to be rude or something), but I believe the answer for such a trivial thing should be placed in a more prominent place (not on the third page of a forum thread). Of course you can expect people to read change logs, but just for the ROM version they are using/installing, not for previous versions.

The thread exists to detail every feature of the ROM. It is not merely a change log but detailed instructions on how to use each feature. If people would read it they would know this.
