    Default Galaxy S3: deleting a home screen - touchwiz crashes

    I keep trying to delete a home screen by hitting menu, edit page and moving the page to the trash. Touchwiz continues to crash by doing this and I can't get rid of the home screens.

    Is there another way to do this?

    Thank you

    If you pinch on any of the homescreens, they all appear in one screen, then you can drag whatever screen you want into the trashcan at the bottom..

    same problem on my phone... don't kknow what is causing it. started after the update to jelly bean, maybe the touchwiz is not really polished with the new version of android....can't wait for the next update!!!

    Go to the developer options under settings, and change the animations to 10x. it will be slow, but go back and it should delete the extra pages. After change them back.
    Dont know why or how, but it worked for me.

    Disable the developers options--all together--and you can delete the screens and then re-enable the options. I also suggest a restart afterward.

    I am on a I9305 running 4.1.2 and I cannot verify the animation increase or the other post stating to turn the developer options off, it's the three animation options which need to be turned off. This needs to be reported to Samsung, as I don't think these crashes are reported back. Could anyone link me to a respective feedback possibility?

    Cool Re: deleting a home screen - touchwiz crashes

    Hi All!

    I changed the "window animation scale" to 10x but issue remained. I figured I'd change all the various animation scale settings to "off" and WOILA!!! issue resolved. I then went back into the developer options and was able to change the various animation scale settings without TW crashing. Hope this helps.

    Thx 4 da tip & thx 2 all 4 contributing!

    Dear Mr. Advisor,

    It cleared the date in TouchWiz Home, all my settings for home screen were lost, THANKS to you. Samsung SUCKS in this matter, they don't have a system (at least I couldn't find one) to get feedback from end-users!!!!

    Thanks anyway &

    Seriously? You come in here, don't ask a question, and follow the advice given to someone else, and then complain? Did you try any of the other options first? The advice you're referring to was given to someone who had tried the other options and found they didn't work. And I'm not sure who you think is "Mr. Advisor." Everyone here is just a Samsung user, trying to help other users. There are no official support people here.

    As for providing feedback to Samsung, they have a Facebook page that they monitor and respond to questions on, and a tech support option on their web site (the US one, at least).

    Finally, so your settings were lost. If it resolved the problem you were having (which you haven't yet described) it's hardly the end of the world, you can rebuilt the screens in probably 15 minutes.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Turning off developer options is the way forward on this one

    Clearing settings on touchwiz wont work. At the risk of siding with mr qureshi... This advice was based upon no experience of the issue from the user giving it and with no warning of the possibility your settings would be cleared...

    If hes having the same issue as the OP why would he ask the same question again?

    Anyway... Disable developer options in settings thanks bigbad

    If he were having the same problem as the OP, why would he skip to the very bottom of the thread and try the last piece of advice given, instead of trying what multiple other posters suggested, which is to turn off developer options?

    I just had this issue with mine as well.

    Tried adjusting the animations, no help. Tried disabling dev options, that did not help either, kept crashing touchwiz.

    Figured out if I selected a screen as the home page, then dragged it to the trash, that it would let me delete that empty screen, and would then re-assign any other random screen as home screen. Repeated until all empty screens were gone and I had only the screens left I wished to keep.

    Just another tip if the dev options and animation settings does not solve your issue.

    What did work
    Pinch the screen to show all screens and dragging them to the trash

    What did not work
    Turning off delvoper options
    Changing animation scales 0-10
    clearing cache and setting from touchwiz (this deleted all my icons and widgets)
    Disabling touchwiz
    Soft reset

    If it really is that bad...and it may be...how about downloading another launcher? I would suggest Nova Launcher. I use that on 2 of my three Samsung devices. I like it better than TouchWiz anyway.

    Anyone reading this post wondering why not the 3rd device? I like the weather widget that comes stock with my Sprint phones, and it doesn't load when using Nova.
