    Home Screen

    Done alot of searching... too broad a phrase to come up with any answers..

    I want to be able to get to my main Home screen, (the center one) by just pressing the soft home button.

    I am using HelixLauncher and currently have my gallery app on the screen to the left. When I press the Home soft key, it takes me back to the screen that the gallery app is on. I have to press it again to get to the center.

    I would like to be able to go directly to the center home on the first soft key press. Any ideas on how to do this?

    Any help is appreciated.

    if you press the home button when in an application, it will take you back to the home screen you were originally on (1/3 or 3/3)... if you press it again it will take you back to the main home screen

    Just move/slide your movable apps over to the (default) homescreen (the one that shows when you touch the home button)

    WOW!! That's great advice! You should work for Verizon!

    That's like when I tell my doctor that it hurts when I move my arm he tells me, "Well don't move it then"!

    I want to keep my set-up the way it is.. my default Home is perfect. I simply want to go "home" on the first touch of the soft Home button.

    HA Ha, yeah, I guess your right, Duh
    I use Helix, and had the same problem. (5 screens). Helix defaulted to the middle screen, which was empty, so that's what I did..scooted everything over one screen. Works for me!
    Good luck, Droid bro.

    Sorry but bassman is right as much as it might suck. The screens should have been cleard before jumping up to more than 3. That way the middle screen could have been established by hitting home and set up from there. I don't think there is any other way other than clearing them and starting over

    Try adw, there's a post somewhere in this forum. It's not available thru the market and is still quite the beta. But, it has the homescreen feature you want, plus some other cool features.

    Calm down. Just rearrange your apps. Start over.
