Welcome to the forum

If it's just your screen that's broken and your phone turns on you should be ok. You should just be able to connect your phone to your pc with the usb cable (if drivers are installed) and a pop-up will ask you what you want to do. Select look at files for transfer or something like that and drag and drop them to your pc

Edit: if you don't already have the drivers installed the easiest way to install them is to install kies

No problem. I know my fair share but there's people who know more than me but throw it at me and I'll do my best. Anyway you shouldn't really worry about asking questions as I pretty much guarantee there'll be someone here who can answer whatever you can ask

Okay cool, so my home button is acting funny, I always use it to get back to the home page but since I got a new phone I go to press it and it takes me to my recent apps I know if you hold it it'll take you there but I don't hold it I just want to get to my home screen any idea why it's acting that way?

Are you using the stock TouchWiz launcher or are you using a third part one like nova? If you're using a third party one it'll be somewhere in the launcher settings where the home button takes you

Could you go to your honescreen and press menu and post up a screenshot or say what it says?

The soft key button to the left of the home one. Kind of looks like two lines under a hut

Yeah that's TouchWiz so honestly I'm a little stumped why it's doing that. I'm not going to say I'm am expert on TouchWiz as I've always used a third party launcher guy. The only thing I can think of is to go to menu, settings, more tab at top, application manager, scroll to your right again to "All" then scroll down to TouchWiz home and select it and clear data. You'll have to reset your homescreens again but honestly the only thing I can think of at the moment is a complete blitz. Maybe someone who's more TouchWiz experience might be able to chime in?

I've been using stock S4 for about 6 mos. A long press on the home button will take you to history. A quick press should take you to home screen. The difference between a "normal" press and a long press may very with temperature and mood of the phone. Normally if long pressed then a quick press will bring it back.

I have no TouchWiz experience, but I will ask some smart folks to have a look.
