    On my Droid X I just lost my custom homescreens and they have been replaced by some previous versions/default screens. Also, when I press the bottom left key there is no longer an option for "Preferences" and I can not figure out how to get my custom screens back.

    which launcher are you using? how did you just "lose" them? what apps have you installed, what changes have you made?

    Not sure which launcher I am using. I think I accidently hit a button to change my default launcher or home screen. I had launcher pro installed and deleted it and rebooted but to no avail.

    sounds like you went from launcher pro/ADW/or go launcher or some other launcher from the market to the stock launcher. simple fix.
    download clear default home from the market (free) hopen it up and clear defaults. then hit the home button, this should bring up a window with all your launchers installed on the phone. select the one you want. once you are on the correct one, hit home again, check the box to make it default, and select that same launcher again.

    you should be able to clear defaults by accessing settings via the app drawer as well

    In settings, which action will allow me to clear defaults?

    I tried to Clear Default Home. When I cleared defaults and clicked on the home button, it just took me back home to the old home page. No window poppped up listing my launchers.
