    Default Share button

    The majority of apps and even Chrome seem to be directing me to Twitter when i want to share something.

    Any ideas as to how I can correct this?

    Usually, when you press the Share button (i.e., the angled line with the 3 dots), you should get a list of all apps that you can share with. Just to the right of the Share button is a quick-share button, which you can customize. I wonder if this is what you're referring to. Do you see a share button with the Twitter logo, and is that what you're pressing? You can change that default by long-pressing it, then selecting a different app.

    Nope, goes straight to Twitter. Only been doing this for a few days. Can't figure out why..

    Same prob here, after selecting a particular app to share, everything else defaults to that option. Maybe uninstalling that problem app will fix the problem?

    This works.

    It seems to be Chrome that's having the issue. Deleted and reinstalled, but seems to of not solved the problem. Cleared Chrome data etc, but still doing it.

    Ok, so if I understand correctly, when you're using Chrome and you tap the option to Share a page, it just goes straight to Twitter, without showing you the whole list of apps to share with, right? It's weird, and shouldn't happen. What happens if you go to Settings/Apps, select Twitter, and tap Clear Defaults?

    Ok, then try Clearing Defaults for Chrome, using the same process.

    The clearing defaults on individual apps won't do anything because the option won't be highlighted/clickable....going to settings > hamburger menu > reset all will fix the issue

    I suggested clearing defaults in case Twitter had ever been selected as an "Always" default, but you're right, if it never was, then the button will be grey.

    What's a hamburger menu? Mmmmm, hamburger ...

    Funny, I've never heard it referred to that way!
