There you can set to No MultiTasking or don’t keep activities – which will kill all the background running apps to work simultaneously. If you do not want to do so, then you can also set the number of Maximum apps that could run in background while using them simultaneously. If you are opening more apps then the number you specified then the older apps get killed first.
