Abdroid Home Click: App Search removal, Nova Launcher

I searched high and low for this dumb default of having the App Search search box pop up every time I clicked the Home button. It must be people like this, in order to make it default. So, to save time for you and put something out there so people can find it, here it is. First of all, I didn't know what this was called. I'll add a picture if I can.

Fix: In settings in Nova Launcher, go to Gestures & Inputs
Then the first entry is Home button, click on that if it says App Search or anything other than None.
Then in the drop down list select the first entry, None
Click the back button to return to Gestures & Inputs then click Home button to exit settings. Done. Have a great day!
