    I am Jeff. Somehow, my android phone now has 5 individual scrrens. I've only ever used two. My home screen is supposed to be the middle one (#3) and #4 is used, too. After using an app or making a call, my screen goes back to #1, a blank screen. How can I make the #3 screen my home screen. And what is a new setting I have called "Home", a four-colored symbol. Thanks for any help!

    Your home screens are controlled by an app called a "launcher". All phones come with one, but you can install a different one if you want (the same app is also responsible for the "app drawer". The fact that you are asking suggests that you are using the launcher that came with the phone rather than one you installed yourself, in which case we need the information Danny has requested above to know what launcher you are using (and then hopefully someone with experience of that software will be able to answer).

    Did you have a system update before this "new setting" appeared? Or did you install any new apps (or update existing ones)? Where do you see it and what does it do?
