Screenshots are my usual go to way to reference how my phone looked before a factory reset or switching launchers. Although with a different launcher, I would take the opportunity to try something different in how the phone looks.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Thank you very much Ann for the advice on backing up my home screens. I

thought about taking screen shots but I have sooooo many folders on all my

screens w a lot of apps, online sites I've added to the folders also &

didn't know if I could open up all the folders take screen shots that way?

But taking screen shots of everything would most definitely be by far the

easiest. Thanx again.
