    Using alternative launchers on HTC Flyer android tablet

    Even though I have installed new launchers into my HTC Flyer, I can’t use any of those launchers on it. It is still showing the default launcher on the screen. In what way can I change it in this android tablet?

    You can change it by clearing the app defaults available for the launcher app. For that, first tap over the menu button visible on the home screen. Select the ‘Settings’ option afterwards and hit the ‘Applications’ option from the settings list. Tap the ‘Manage Applications’ option pop up on the screen. You can then view a list of applications on your phone. Browse through that list and locate the launcher entry. Open that entry by simply tapping over it. Navigate into the bottom part and tap the ‘Clear defaults’ option. Finally, press the ‘Home’ button so that you can see the choices for launcher.

    Hello Guest,
    In some phones, the home button on being pressed automatically displays the list of launchers, once you have installed new launchers. However, it seems that your phone works in a different way. But, dont worry. You will be surely helped here. You have to clear the defaults in the phone's predefined launcher app. To accomplish this, Just point to Menu>Settings>Applications>Manage Applications. Now, tap on the default HTC launcher app. A new screen appears, showing various details. Just scroll down and tap on the "Clear Defaults" option. After this press the Home Button, now you can choose the launcher which you have downloaded. Thank You for visiting this forum. Regards!!!
