    Default Turn Off Nova Launcher

    Hi;

    I have the paid version of Nova Launcher. Is there a way to disable it and go back to the stock Samsung S4 screen? I dont really want to remove the nova launcher, I just want to be able to switch between the two as desired.

    Thanks for any help

    Thanks Golf, but how do I go about switching back to Nova Launcher. Also, if I clear defaults, will I loose all my Nova settings? I want to be able to switch between the stock launcher and nova launcher.

    Thanks Again

    That should just clear the setting of every time you hit home that it uses Nova. After that, when you hit home it should ask.

    You can also long press the home button and hit the first icon, and there will be a defaults tab where you can clear your default apps.

    Download the app Home Switcher from the Play store. You can set up multiple launchers just as you like them and just use that app to switch back and forth with ease.

    +1 for Home Switcher or Launcher Manager. It's the best way to test drive several launchers.
