Hi guys,

Yesterday I was trying some launchers because I'm bored with Sense's one.

I tryied launcher pro and it was a very good launcher but it had something I don't like.

Let's say I'm in the home screen. I go to the menu and I tap to open for example Gallery app. If I hit back, with the launcher pro it sends me to the home screen (just like if I hit home button) BUT the Sense's launcher goes really back -> to the previous screen which is the menu.

Can I make something for the LauncherPro to work like Sense on this situation?

Thanks a lot guys.

I just checked my settings, there's lots of options and I didn't check them all but it looks like you could at least set the home button to open/close the app drawer in preferences>behavior. That might be a solution.

As I said ... I just want when running LauncherPro the 'back' button to have the same behavior as when running Sense.

Just tested on my phone and it takes me back to the screen I was on. I couldn't find anything in the settings though, so I'm not sure why your's is doing this.

Sorry!

You launched an app from the menu? Then you hitted the back button and taked you to the previous screen (not homescreen) at menu?


Strange thing. My brother's Zte Blade does the same with my phone...

I think OP is talking about opening an app from the app drawer right?

Unfortunately launcherpro doesn't allow the app drawer to be opened in the background, so pressing back will just put you back to home screen.

I think most other launchers do the same thing. You can try other launchers like ADW launcher, Zeam Launcher and Go Launcher. See if any of them has more App Drawer options for you..

Yes... that's I'm talking about. Back to the app drawer.

Tested ADW, does the same.... that's awful.
