Questions and Answers

How to reset the home button to not take it into easy mode?

The easy mode is turned off but I set the home button to take it to easy mode and that is not what I wanted to do

The only way I can find that might fix this is from any home screen you are on select menu and then edit page. You should be able to select a little arrow on the top right hand corner of each screen. In order to change where your home button goes you need to select this little arrow, once selected as your home screen it will be blue.
