    I mistakenly downloaded a program that changed my home screen and I want to get back to the default home screen. Now with whatever it was that I have on there now (and I can't even find the name of it) it changes many important things. For instance, the icon on the very bottom left of the phone (menu?) now when I tap on that it only shows three options on the menu that comes up
    1. wallpaper
    2. manage apps
    3. system settings
    instead of the six that used to show up:
    add, search, notifications etc.

    How can I get back to the default? Thank you in advance.

    Download "home manager" from the play store. This is the easiest way I know to switch which launcher you use.

    BTW apex is a good launcher, might try that one out.

    Go into system>apps>downloaded and choose the app that changed it and select clear defaults.

    Or either uninstall the app completely.
