Is there a option or rom that has a feature to change the task manager button to the menu button?

I hate that there is no menu button. Most apps have a separate menu key, but sometimes I just need my own button.

Thanks.

If not rooted, long press former menu key to get to menus.

Hold down the recent apps button and you get menu options

Quick press=recent
Long press= menu

Can you please mention how you did it? I installed it and I dont have option of Remaping, my device is exynos and rooted, xposed framework installed, however, I have in the buttons option only Add new Key but not remapping.

Thanks

You need the pro version for remapping.

Just did a step by step with drawn on screen shots but just realized I can't post them on XDA Lol. I think I need more Posts or something. Either way. You should see:

1. Buttons
2. Add new Key
3. Press the recent apps button. Click ok
4. Add new condition.
5. Screen on
6. Go to click. Then change it to menu.
7. Go to long press. Change that button or disable it.

Step 6, I only saw app list and nothing that referred to menu.
