    Default Problem: Clear Default App settings???

    Everytime I try to open a video or the web.. i get the little popup box that says:

    Clear default app settings by going to Settings>Applications manager>all.

    I hit "ok" and I get to pick what I want to use to open it and I ALWAYS select ALWAYS...then.. next time I want to open another video or webpage.. i get the same thing. even right after I selected ALWAYS the first time.. What am I doing wrong or what can I do to make the selection I make Stick!

    I've noticed this as well recently. A while back I had designated Adobe Reader to be the default to open pdf files and that worked fine. Can't say for sure but it seems like this started after downloading one of the recent Samsung updates.

    I started a thread for exactly the same issue.... On the irritation scale it sits well in the red!

    I had it when I made a call - do you want to use Skype, Viber or Phone if you press phone (want this as standard or it wont work in the car kit) "Always" that pop-up box came up and even following thee instructions didn't help.

    what I did though was go into applications and force stop Skype and Viber and so far the issue hasn't arisen again as it now just uses the Phone

    ... but I'm not convinced this is permenant.

    I have the same issue, and it is a problem that I cannot stop the other items. I use a address lookup and then ask for directions, I want to use google maps but it also asks if I want to use chrome that I use for other things.... IT IS FRUSTRATING...

    UPDATE: For whatever reason, my selection of Adobe Reader as the default when opening pdf files now seems to be retained. Go figure.

    Either reset for all applications (not a big deal) or uninstall Adobe Reader and install it again.

    I found what seems to be a solution- i downloaded an app from goggle play called "Default App Manager lite" and it seems to have solved the problem! It's a free app and under 1mb of space!

    On my Galaxy Note 10.1 2014, I accidentally set a photo editor to always be used for cropping lock page wallpapers. Now I can't find anywhere to unset that specific default. Every default app management app I have tried doesn't address the lock page or wallpaper defaults or whatever it is that this default is related to. It's a problem, because the editor being used isn't able to crop the images very well and is producing bad quality crops. Now the first screen anyone sees is either a bad quality image or I have to use a wallpaper that came with the Note. I *reallyyyyy* want this fixed.
