Subject: Re: Palm Tungsten C: How to get to the desktop with the Stylus?
> When I play a game of solitaire on my Tungsten C, then wish to do

When you press HOME, The game is saved and then explicitly shut down. When
you return to the game, it is programmed to load that last game.

Well, unless there are multiple processors, there is never truly
multi-tasking, even in Window$. Suspension is what happens in practice and
PalmOS does not support suspension.
> I am really not so much concerned with how the app closes,
as I am trying to learn to operate my new Palm totally using the stylus.
I think this was possible even in the farther past.
> When I am in an app, like solitaire, I must somehow, stow the stylus, put
it down or
put it on the hand that is holding the Palm and use the free hand or
use my thumb or other free finger on my stylus hand to hit the HOME key to
return to the Palm Main Desktop.
If you are right-handed, use the thumb of the left hand to do all the
clicking. The right hand needs never leave the stylus.a
