Marshmallow 6.0 Android: Set a home screen


Apparently Android Marshmallow does nor allow users to set a specific screen like the home screen.

On my old phone running Kitkat, I had the ability to set one of my screens as the go - to the screen by pressing the home button. Motorola is considering adding such a parameter in a future incremental update of the system?

Thank you in advance for your attention and help.

Kind regards

Motorola has the approach to provide close to stock android and not to match a lot of customization if there are applications that meet the need - many users that wan't more customization of choose them to add other applications.

In the case of the home screens - many use the Nova pitcher or one of many other android launchers.

With Android M - push the home button always takes you to the left that most - one more to the left screen is the screen of google instant. So rather that you assign a specific screen like the home screen, you can move just everything you want on the left most screen - then pushing the home button would take you for that screen.

  • Citing record and manually set as home screen Image

    Hello everyone,

    I am new to the Blackberry development and there is a lot to read and learn, which is excellent!

    However, I have a hard time finding ways call a built-in feature 'Save the Image' of my request and I was wondering if it is possible at all.

    Explanation of the problem:

    My application uses the example of browser field to get content from the Internet. When I am clicking on any image within the BrowserContentManager I make a menu. One of the options of the menu is 'Save Image'. If I choose this option, I get a screen that allows me to record the image. It's perfect. However, I would like to have a separate button field, outside the BrowserContnetManager that will exactly the same thing.

    I tried to use the application manager as described in the documentation:

    ApplicationManager Manager = ApplicationManager.getApplicationManager ();

    ApplicationDescriptor descriptors [] = manager.getVisibleApplications ();

    However, it does not return the application descriptor 'Save Image'.

    I'm certainly on bad road, and any success will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you :-)

    A browserfield provides copies where reference to the content it contains.  Therefore, there is no way to tell if the user has selected an image or to set the focus to an image in a web page.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones can set the home screen to display all icons and don't go into the Favorites, Media, downloads etc.?

    I just got a Bold 9780 and that's fine except that when I try to access the icon I want, I keep accidentally swipe the screen in a different position, he's going to 'All' in 'Favorites', 'Media', "downloads,"Frequent"then back to 'All'. My only previous, 9700, just had all the icons on the screen and did not have these alternative schemes. I find it quite disconcerting and want to fix to display ALL icons of all time. Cannot find how to do this.

    I know what you mean.  You can do this in OS7, but I think not only its available with OS6

    If you want a search engine to be your "home page" when you open Firefox, you should always keep your favorite search engine on an open tab, like . You will need to do some work to keep it open, as ensuring that this search engine was the last tab that you had open before leaving Firefox. Now, go to Settings - customize - tabs - and make sure it is set to "always restore." Now, if you open tabs before you quit Firefox you do not close, the last of them opens and can technically be your "homepage". Now you can open your e-mail login page too, as long as it was under the tabs open in firefox. Hope this helps some!

  • Simulator deploy token not to see the place. How to return to the home screen of the setting screen?

    I tried to test the app on my bb10 Simulator,

    of webworks...\bin, I ggenerated dubugtoken, then use blackberry - deploy deploy IP Simulator.

    but side Simulator, I do not see that this token of debugging has been deployed.

    What should I do?

    How to return to the home screen of the setting screen? There is no back button the page setting of the Simulator.

    Thank you.

    Hi neemliu,

    To return to the home screen, you must slide up from the bottom of the screen. You need to make the same gesture, using your mouse when you use the Simulator. Drag the mouse with the lower edge of the screen to the top.

    What do you see in the output for blackberry - deploy when you deploy the token? He succeeds?

    Have you tried to deploy applications? The process is the same, if you can deploy applications then you should be able to deploy the debugging token.

  • Will set up the HP Photosmart 7510 new iMac OSX 10.7.3; Cannot get the home screen appears.

    Instead of the home screen, I get an error message ' no connection: your printer is not connected to a network. " If please connect to a network and try again. "I downloaded the software and latest drivers; my iMac recognizes the new HP printer.  But I must still be able to get the home screen to display on the printer so that I can do the basic settings.  I did the simple troubleshooting suggestions (for example, for printer disconnected from the socket wall and then plugged in;) I restarted the iMac; I uninstalled the software and drivers and reinstalled)... but no change, cannot get the home screen appears.

    The printer turned on, unplug the power to the back of the printer (not the wall) for 30 seconds.

    If this does not work, it seems that your printer is maybe defective.  Here's how to contact HP technical support: (click on printers & monitors, there is a phone number on the resulting page).

  • Help! I can't change the search engine for the Firefox widget on my home screen

    OK, so my engine failure to research on FF for Android is Duckduckgo. It is also the only one I have in my list of search engines in FF settings. I also use the search widget FF on my homescreen for quick search. It is and has always been, Duckduckgo. But, all of a sudden after the recent update (I use the FF, 36 beta something), for my search widget on my home screen, switched to Google search engine! I don't know why... I never use it. But this applies only to the search engine for the FF search on my home screen widget, not when I'm looking for something in FF itself. Does anyone else have this problem? Because I can't find a way to change the search engine in the FF widget... Looked everywhere in search widget settings and in FF itself. Thanks for the help of any body!

    I found a way to implement back to DuckDuckGo after a bit of fiddling with the default search engine in the browser.

    I think that the update should have overridden the setting somehow. What you need to do is to any other search engine default, then set DuckDuckGo returned as default. This will also update engine of the widget's default search.

    I hope this helps.

    Show star on the home screen?

    Hi @Starshowonmyscreen,

    As says @Curnow1 looks like your phone is set in priority mode.
    Press the volume once key to increase the volume. Depending on your version of Android, you might also get a menu at the top of the screen where you you can choose between Silent, priority and sound. Choose her and this star will disappear.
