Home button on Samsung S5

Recommended Posts

When I had Opera Betal installed on my Samsung Galaxy S5 then holding down the home button (long press) started Opera.

Nice tweak since I then saved on "icon" on the home screen (getting 6 shortcuts including web browser).


I actually thought this was the standard. SO I was a bit disappointed when I uninstalled Opera to use the stock browser.

Then I discovered that long-pressing the home button not opens Internet anymore, but just "Google search" (which I never use).


So, any have any idea if it's possible to change what is launched when pressing the "home key"?

SInce Opera found a way to reprogram it is possible. Why isn't there a setting for it somewhere?

Well, @LarsErikOsterud Because you have uninstalled opera which is set to open up the browser the system defaults have change you need to configure it again and that can be done by heading over to the Settings from the drop down list>Default applications>Tap over Home and you can change its default to open up browser when touched,
