    ie: Google now launcher or easy home or home then has a tick and use as default app
    underneath it states To show this pop up again go to settings >apps and tap clear defaults!

    Thanks in advance Gary

    Yes but you don't want to see the popup anymore, correct? I'm not sure I fully understand your question as posted however if I am understanding what you are asking these are the two things I would try; Go to the app and clear the defaults and try to set a homepage again and see if it simply didn't take for some reason. Or have you selected a default home page for Google Now? I would check the app settings for anything that will allow you to make this selection.

    Okay, here is my problem on the galaxy note4. whenever I use the home key to back out of whatever task I am performing (a much slower option is to simply use the "hidden" button on the bottom right side of screen). a popup window asks for me to choose a home app (a choice between TouchWiz Home or the TouchWiz easy Home). it doesn't matter which one i choose "Always" for. It ALWAYS reappears.. asking me to choose again and again and again and again each time i use the HomeKey to exit certain tasks.

    Go into your app manager and disable one or the other. It's not the optimum solution but it should stop the pop-ups.

    More to the root have you ever gone in after making a selection and set one or they the other up? Do they appear in your app drawer or under your settings like in personalize? There may be a setting in there that would either stop it from asking or that isn't set up that affects some behavior that it wants to do when you close an app. Or it's app related, something you've installed... Are either of them something you installed or are they both stock? If stock try uninstalling the updates for one or both. Also available from the app manager or the play store under the my apps section.

    I know this was so long ago, but I have been having this problem since I got my phone back in June, and I just barely found the answer to my problem after weeks of searching.

    I was completely bugged by the dang screen popping up every single time I pressed the home button. It kept asking me to select the home page. I had tried unchecking the box, rechecking the box, uninstalling things, reinstalling things, etc. I found out that one app was causing this mess—"Connect to Hotmail." Once I uninstalled this, all I wanted to do was press the home button because I was excited not to see the pop up, haha!

    I had this problem on two of my devices and I installed Nova Launcher. It actually alerted me to what program was causing the conflict that brought up the home screen selection.

    Hi all, I had this today, it was caused by an app I accidentally installed called Zigaloo.

    The fix was to install Nova, once installed I went into Nova settings and it told me right away about the issue.

    THANKYOU!!!!! dsum32
