    Default Apps Close to Open Folder

    I know this has been asked before in this forum, but for the life of me I cannot find the previous topic discussing this question. I remember reading it before I got the GN2 and thinking "big deal"... and now it is kind of driving me crazy. If you have a folder created on one of your homescreens with a couple of apps in it, you open the folder, launch an app, then press the Verizon button (I call it that for effect), the app gets back-grounded and the phone returns to the homescreen with the folder open.

    My question is: is there a way, un-rooted, stock rom, to change this behavior to something like" close folder on app launch" or "close folders when home button is pressed"? I would appreciate any insight into this!

    Thanks.

    Well, you can switch to a different launcher. I use Nova Launcher and it works the way you want.

    Yeah, I was thinking about giving Nova a try - I've heard good things - but I was hoping to get this resolved on a completely stock config before going that route. Besides this one little annoyance I'm having zero other issues, and it's not really a switching-launchers kind of problem for me. :-) Thanks for the response!

    I guess my feeling is that if you are considering switching laaunchers, you might as well do it beofre you spend a lot of time learning and configuring the one you are moving away from.

    I hated the stock launcher, so I dumped it pretty quickly. I could have put up with a lot, but having a 4 by 4 grid on a 5.5 inch display was making me crazy. If Nova Launcher gave me nothing but the 5x6 grid I am using now, it would be worth switching.

    This is driving me nuts also.

    You can use an app such as Circle Launcher and keep your stock Touchwiz launcher. It's very customizable.
