Re: Default home screen setting??

@alex_ncfc And did you add more than one screen to try and see that option?

Yes I have added the total of 7 that I would usually have, but there is no "house" icon in the top corner of any of them. My housemate has a Z5 Compact and I asked him to look on his and he has it.

And which one stays when you press home once?

The one on the far left. If I press home from any screen, or any of my other home screens, it will fly back to that one.

Strange, and on that one no home icon? What if you try to remove that one? Remove them all.

No home icon on any of them at all. I've tried restarting the phone too. I'll try removing them and get back to you.

Removed all (apart from one as I obviously can't have zero home screens) and still no joy - although I noticed something - when I click the '+' symbol to add a new one, on the transition of the new home screen coming into view, the home symbol is there - but disappears far too quickly to be able to do anything with it.

Try to clear data for xperia home under settings - apps (show system from the 3 dots). It will reset home customizations.

Gahhh, still no luck at all even after clearing the app data and cache. This has stumped me, there must be someone on here who has this particular model (X Compact) who can tell me if this is indeed a known bug??

 

Thank you for all your help so far.

@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.
