It's a very annoying bug. I always get this when I try to open soemting in tapatalk or open office. It simply won't store the 'open with' settings.

What you can try is to temporarily install another launcher (Apex and Nova are free), press home, select that one as always, uninstall it again, press home and select the one you want. Might work.
SM-N9005 International Galaxy Note 3, DBT NB7 Stock
SM-G900F International Galaxy S5, PHN NCE Stock
SM-P905 NotePro 12.2 LTE Black, DBT NC3 Stock

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

It was solved by uninstalling updates for google search. But the problem has again came in after few days now.
I dont want to install any launcher.
Is this because of tapatalk?

I wasn't suggesting you actually keep the other launcher.

No, it's because of a few system files in KitKat not being writable. It has nothing to do with the specific apps. (The WiFi password file also has this issue for som.e
