    Hi Javier!

    I am having the same issue with a Google Pixel and when I go to the activities in Nova launcher there is no Setup Wizard option. Are there any other work arounds in order to do this?
    I think they removed that option in some devices after Nougat or at least it's hidden in the different place. I can't find it anymore under Nova activities on 7.1.1.

    You could open a new thread in the Pixel sub-forum giving as much detail as you can. Maybe some owners have faced the same problem and know a workaround.

    If you do so, leave the link here so we can trace it easier. In the meantime I'll do a bit of search about any possible fix on Oreo.

    Just a thought. Have you already tried switching to 'guest' user and back to 'owner' in settings - users?

    Hope someone can help!

    I have multiple problems after my Moto E2 upgraded to Marshmallow recently.

    1) My phone connects to my PC, but just shows 'empty folder' rather than the contents of internal storage and SD card as it did with Lollipop. I have found various solutions on-line, but all involve going into developer mode.

    2) I can't get into developer mode. I had done so in Lollipop - now 7 taps - even 17 taps, on Build number just brings up part of an unmovable magnified image of the about phone menu - it certainly doesn't get me into developer mode. Clicking on developer options just shows developer options are not available to this user.

    3) Home and Settings buttons don't work. They light up and vibrate when I tap them but they do nothing. So now, how do I switch quickly between apps - eg to copy from a web site into Keep or copy and paste between documents? And how do I get quickly back into the Home menu without backing out of each individual page? (I use Smart Launcher)

    4) Why has the name of the SD card changed to a 8 digit code? What was wrong with SD card 1?

    5) I seem to have less space in Internal Storage for Apps, and under apps in settings there seems to be no easy way to send apps to the SD card as there used to be. How do you do that?

    I want to reformat my SD card to Internal storage but am loath to do that if I am not going to be able to reload my pictures and music and at the moment I can find no way top get files from my PC to my phone. None of this feels like progress to me and I'm feeling I'd like Lollipop back - first step - enter developer mode - see 2 above!

    Help!


    You definitely entered a User's Account or activated your Work Profile. Go to Settings/Accounts and you'll see Work Profile below your Pesonal Profile. If you did not mean to activate your Work Profile then proceed to deactivate it accordingly.

    *Just remember that Developer's Option Settings is not accessible from any Users Account created from the Owner's or Main account. *

    Also, correct me if I'm wrong, likewise, Work Profile cannot access Developer's Options either. Only the main Personal Profile can access it.

    To sum up, you are most definitely not in the Owner's or Main Personal Account. If you own the device then deactivate that account from Settings/Accounts if you have no need of it to avoid any burden on your device's resources. If you don't own the device, the owner might have opened that account for you, an account that disallows you to do many things that might affect the Main account. Basically, the user is relegated within the confines of what the owner has determined for you. You then need to talk to your father er-the owner of the device and initiate a deal for more freedom ;-)

    Sorry, it's best to explain it this way to show the advantages of having a User Account (say your father allows you to use his tablet and created a User Account for you) or Work Profile (initiated by Admin or the company you work for, if your company has control over your device or issued you one for your use that is connected to your supervisor in case you are out on sales call) Personal Profile is yours and basically has God mode over your device including Work Profile.

    Oasis Feng, the creator of Greenify app, has a very good execution of this in her app, Island, which is a fascinating way to learn about Sandboxing and God mode as she termed it. I have been using Island for a year now. I use it as a privacy tool so scammers and fraudsters can't get to my personal data.
