Default Home Button settings

Anyone know how to set home button features on this Note 3?

After following a few of those steps the double click on the home button vanished completely and now clicking on the home button no longer takes you back to the home page. It asks you to pick from one of the following :
1)Samsung Knox
2)TouchWiz easy home
3) TouchWiz home

Choose TouchWiz home to have the phone operate the way it did out of the box. Easy home is a simplified interface. I actually thought it was pretty nice looking but very limited. Don't forgot to choose always below it so that it will become the default behavior.

I turned off the Magazine and the S-Voice stuff and didn't run into any issues like you describe. If you pick Touchwiz Home do you have to do it again the next time you hit the Home button?

How do you turn off that worthless Magazine?
Where is its app icon?

Its not in the Samsung folder with the other worthless apps.

You have to go through a brief setup and let it start before you can get to the settings menu in the app and turn off the home button launch function.

I thought that the magazine was actually quite good. Not sure if the one in Asia is different than the one in the US but here I can get quite a bit of news in my Newsfeeds but I prefer the one on my HTC ONE as it has more custom options available.

Found the App in the App Manager - it's called "My Magazine" in case I ever want it back on after turning it off.

When the "complete action using" window comes up choose Touchwiz Home. There will be two options beneath it:

1. Always
2. Just once

If you select Always you will NOT have to do it again.
