    The home screen that was in first position now is in 3rd. When I press home button it jumps to the 3rd screen. How can I change the settings back to the way it was? Stupid phone screen was on in my pocket, that's' how it happened.

    Your posting in the Galaxy S5 Guides section. You say you have a Galaxy Nexus. Which one is it?

    You will need to rearrange the screens the way you want them.

    Congrats on your S5...are you using the stock launcher or a 3rd party launcher such as Nova, Apex, GO, etc?

    If you long press on your homescreen, that will bring up the current arrangement of your screens by shrinking them down a bit so you can see all 3 of them, (or however many you have). From there long press on whichever screen you want to be your "home" screen and drag it to where you want it.

    (I hope that made sense, it's easier to do than describe) :)
    Holler if there's anything else we can help you with.

    What you explained is just rearranging the location of screens, that's not what I intend to do. Right now the little home icon showing in "screen indicator" is in 3rd position (from left), originally it was in the first position. With your method I can rearrange the screens, but the location of home screen doesn't change.

    You should be able to long press on the home icon and drag it to the screen you want it to default as home...

    And if you cannot drag and drop the home icon, are there faded icons on the other pages? If so, you should be able to tap on the faded home icon and it will make that your home screen (this method is what works on my Note 3)...
