I'm using Samsung Galaxy S7. Long-pressing the recent button does not simulate menu button but activates split screen mode. Long-pressing the back button doesn't work either; it simply closes the app. I'm using an old app that requires the menu button. Any solution to this without rooting the phone?

如果APP足够旧以期望菜单按钮，则系统应自动显示一个：右侧右侧的三个垂直点。或者三星是否禁用？ Wyzard 2016-04-03 00:02:04Z, License: CC BY-SA 3.0
@Wyzard，不确定三星是否已禁用，但它至少在任何地方出现，至少对于三星S7。 supertonsky 2016-04-04 08:03:35Z, License: CC BY-SA 3.0
If an app is old enough to expect a menu button, the system should display one automatically: three vertical dots to the right of the recents button. Or does Samsung disable that? Wyzard 2016-04-03 00:02:04Z, License: CC BY-SA 3.0
@Wyzard, not sure if Samsung disabled that but it doesn't appear anywhere, at least for Samsung S7 supertonsky 2016-04-04 08:03:35Z, License: CC BY-SA 3.0
As per this post, go to Settings xe2x86x92 Accessibility xe2x86x92 Dexterity and Interaction xe2x86x92 turn on the Assistant Menu. This will add a floating button to the screen that you can press to reveal a menu containing the old Menu button.
Samsung also says "In certain applications, you can touch and hold the Recent Apps button to view the Menu options." This is probably limited to newer apps as well which is why it didn't work for you.

谢谢，这有效。真的希望有一个更好的方法，只需启用/禁用该助手弹出，只需要一个需要它有点麻烦。 Răzvan Flavius Panda 2017-08-12 10:58:10Z, License: CC BY-SA 3.0
Thank you, this works great. Really wish there was a better way though, having to enable/disable that assistant pop-up just for 1 app that needs it is a bit troublesome Răzvan Flavius Panda 2017-08-12 10:58:10Z, License: CC BY-SA 3.0
I was able to get the long press of the back button on my Galaxy S7 to open the menu on a really old app by forcing the keyboard to open first. My app "eWallet GO!" has a Search field that I was able to click in to open the keyboard. After the keyboard (Swype in my case) opened, I held down on the back button and the app's menu opened. Previously, the whole app had closed when I tried holding down the back button.
