LG G5 Home Button Help.

My G5 recently did the 2AA update and ever since it won't recognize my default home setting when I click the home button while in an app.  Almost every time I click the circle home button or close all open apps it asks me which type of home I want to use and then "just once" or "always".  It never used to to do this and it is incredibly annoying.  Any fix for this?

Re: LG G5 Home Button Help.

It sounds like you have more than one UI launcher applications installed. The one that came with the phone and maybe the Google launcher or another launcher. You need to either disable one or select "always" first before selecting the preferred launcher.

I think you’re on to something, Ann154. Thanks for jumping in to help. Nicolio1886, do you have another launcher application installed from Google’s Play Store? If you select “always” from that pop up, does it continue to come up? If you go into Settings > Home Screen > Select Home, what options do you see? I want to make sure we’ve covered all the bases to get your home button working like it use to.
