    Android 5.1.1 earlier gave the choice of "Always"or "just once"when a task could be done by 2 or more apps.
    But now in the marshmallow update ...it doesnt ask for any such choice.
    It gives the options without the "always or just once"
    And uses the application as default which was used for past 2 or 3 times.
    I need those options back.
    Plzz help...

    On my Galaxy Note 4 upgraded to Marshmallow, even if I clear my defaults the next time I try and launch something that requires a different app and get the pop-up for which app to use (i.e. a browser app and I can choose between Chrome, Firefox, etc.), there is no option for "just once" and whatever I click then is set as the default going forward. Any solutions to get the choice for "just once" back? Thanks!

    I just want the option back of just once or always each time i open any file.
    Clearing default just solves the problem momentarily and we are back to square one.

    Thank you for the solution
    This works for the moment
    It actually sets the app "better open with" as the default app.
    So when any file is open with this app
    This app gives the choice of all possible apps to execute the file.
    I would like to have a permanent solution if any or has marshmallow deleted this feature.
    All suggestions are welcomed.

    This isn't a Marshmallow feature, it's a Samsung screw-up. Whether it's intentional or not I don't know, but it seems to be only Samsung devices have this problem.

    Just so you know who to address complaints to.
