Default home screen setting??

Hi all,

 

Upon adding some extra home screen so I can add more Widgets, I can't see how to set my default home screen. I like to have 7 screens with the 4th one the default ("middle" screen) but I can't find any settings for this, any ideas?

 

Thanks

@alex_ncfc You have google now enabled for xperia home, that will always make the home page the one that is just after the google panel.

Pinch zoom anywhere on the homescreen > check on the top left side, there should be a home icon

Doesn't look like there is.

I can't see the picture until it gets approved.

@alex_ncfc What if you try to swipe left or right when in that state?

@alex_ncfc Did you check safe mode?

I'm reluctant to go into safe mode as I tried that on my Z1 Compact a few months ago and I lost all my home screens and some app settings.

But it should allow you to swipe left or right in order to add more screens. Did you really configure that much of your new device to be afraid to check safe mode?

Re: Default home screen setting??

It does allow me to add more screens, there just isn't a home icon to set the default main home screen. And I don't know why. I suppose I haven't configured too much but I would like to know if anyone else with an X or X Compact has this issue before I try going into Safe Mode.
