Arrow Replace menu button w/ recent task

I am running the stock LG Rom and i really hate the fact i need to hold down the home key to access recent apps. Is there any way to replace the menu button and get the recent task/apps button without installing any custom rom?

Root, xposed, and a module like G2.

The only thing i understood is that you asked me to root.
Please be a bit more descriptive. Or give me a link to a thread if it exists.
Thank You

You need to, of course, root your device. Then, you can install something called Xposed. You will have to search to figure the xposed installer out. Xposed has several components that can be added, one of which is the G2 module (there are lots of modules that do different things). The G2 module has options to switch your softkey layout.

Of course a complete tutorial is beyond the scope of this brief response. But it should get you started.

Good luck! (it isn't hard...)
