How To Access WhatsApp Setting Or Set Status On HTC One V?

It’s really frustrated to find apps setting on HTC One V (the scaled down version of HTC One X), as there is no menu button (the dotted vertical line) displayed by the app like WhatsApp, ES File Explorer, etc.

The HTC One V Recent Apps button is also functioning as menu button of an active app.So, how to set WhatsApp status if you can’t find the way to access WhatsApp setting/menu page?

Here you go – the Recent Apps button of HTC One V (the red circle, as shown in screenshot) is also functioning as a menu button of an active app!

Thus, open WhatsApp then tap and hold down on the Recent Apps button for 3 seconds or longer, then you’ll get access to configure settings, create new chat group, set WhatsApp status message, etc. In the Chat screen, long press the Recent Apps button you’ll see options to set wallpaper, add shortcut (of chat) to home screen, email conversation, etc.

Set WhatsApp status message on HTC One V

Once again, using the Recent Apps to function as menu/setting button is applicable to most apps, such as ES File Explorer.
