    Anyone having trouble getting to preferences for Go Launcher? Everytime I install I can not get to preferences for some reason. I may have to give up on it.

    No trouble with preferences here, but periodically going into settings results in a black screen.
    Tapping on it brings it back.

    I am having troube getting to preferences also. I have googled and searched and searched my phone but cannot find a preferences button or app anywhere. I've uninstalled and reinstalled with still nothing. Going into settings and display just gets me into my old launchers stuff.
    SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO GET TO PREFERENCES? Without it I feel like I didn't really install a different launcher.

    Press the hard Menu button, then Preferences? If that's not working, what -is- happening?

    Er, whatever key or button you normally press to bring up the Menu screen. On most Android phones I think it's a physical button.

    Did you make go launcher your default?
    When you press the home key it should ask which launcher you want to use.
    The preferences is on a tab when you press the menu button, the 3 vertical dots.

    Doesn't necessarily mean my attempt to help is any less applicable. AFAIK pretty much all Android devices have some sort of implementation of a "Menu button".

    OK, when you have go launcher set up as your default launcher, you should see three vertical dots on the lower right corner next to your home, back and recent buttons.
    this is the "menu" button in android 4.0

    press that, then choose prefrences as shown in the pic below.

    I expect a "thanks" because i installed Go and took a screen cap, then edited it just for you :)

    It says some sort of implementation of a menu button. The 3 vertical dots qualify.
