How to Restore Android Home Screen

Have you changed the launcher of your Android smartphone but the result is not to your liking? Here's the procedure to follow to restore the screen

One of the advantages that Android guarantees over iOS (and therefore the green robot smartphones over iPhones) lies in the high level of customization that it guarantees users. As a matter of fact, every single aspect of the smartphone can be modified and adapted to one's personal tastes, so as to make the device a "unique piece" among many.

If, for example, you don't like the user interface of your manufacturer, you can simply install an Android launcher to change the graphics of the main screen, the arrangement of the icons of the installed apps and add dozens and dozens of new features to your smartphone. In the long run, this solution might even get you fed up and you might want to retrace your steps. Luckily for you, just as easy as it is to install a new launcher, it's just as easy to restore the initial one: just change a single setting and, within a matter of seconds, you'll be able to restore your Android smartphone's home screen. Here's how to do it.

How to restore Android home screen

To change the Android launcher and restore the "native" one, all you have to do is open the phone's Settings, look for the Apps and notifications entry and click on it. Then all you have to do is click on the Default Apps item and then on Home App and, in the list that appears, choose the system launcher. The procedure just described, however, may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer especially regarding the names of the sections. If you don't agree with what we have just said, look for similar entries that can somehow lead you back to the ones we have just listed. Or, as a last resort, look for the word "home" in the Android Settings and search through the results that will be shown.

In case you're not sure if what you're about to choose is the right launcher (maybe you've installed more than one to try them out), do a web search and check the name. Within a matter of seconds, the operating system will restore all settings and you will get back the "original" screen of your device.
