    hmmmm yeah weird..... i have not seen anything in touchwiz on how to switch it back. this is why i love nova launcher....it is so customizable and would have been easy to fix if the home button decided to do something you do not want it to do.

    curious did you download any new apps that might have change the home button configuration? what happens if you double tap the home button or even long press on the home button?

    nope. when i double press it acts like a menu button and when i long press it brings up s finder. at least the back button works. should i download that launcher and if so how do i do it?

    you can just download nova from the play store:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teslacoilsw.launcher

    but, that is up to you. i hate touchwiz, and have been using nova for years now;)

    the only other thing i can think of is to either take it in to your cell phone provider and see if a tech can figure it out or try and do a factory reset.....as i do not see any way to change the home button function (at least i can't seem to find it, if there is an actual way).
