I don't know what I did, but it seems like Remix OS changed its setting to show some kind of other launcher that is not the default desktop view. I attached screenshots and I have not downloaded any launchers. It shows me Launcher3 as the only option to set as my home launcher when I go to Settings and search the settings entries using the magnifying glass icon. You can see the attached screenshots for a bit more information. I don't really want to install it if there is an easy fix that someone knows of, but if it comes down to that as a last resort option, then I will.

Thanks!

Just uninstall updates to the Remix WiFi app, and disable updates through the Play Store.

And please search the subforum before you post a thread that is a duplicate of others' threads (I have already seen about 3 threads about the exact same problem).

I've had the same issue and it appeared directly after the Remix WiFi update.
The update procedure seems to be a little bit broken. In "Apps" I saw two WiFi-Apps afterwards, the recent version and the new update. (???)
But you cannot uninstall the update in a normal way, you can only force quit.
So I installed "Root App Deleter", to uninstall the new update. But wait, "Root App Deleter" only showed the older version of the WiFi App -> I deactivated it first instead of uninstalling, didn't want to broke the whole system. After a reboot it was still the same mess. So I activated the old WiFi App again with "Root App Deleter", suddenly I saw it marked as "updated". Then I removed the patch, after another reboot everything was fine again. Ok, all Desktop Icons where gone.
Very very strange, this relation between WiFi-App and Desktopmode...

I really like Remix OS, it runs on my Beebox very nice and fluent and in comparison to Linux almost "out of the box", but the stable branch seems to be not that stable it should be.
And there is a lot of improvement needed for some more things..

You're right, this is really odd.
This doesn't sound like the other threads, since there they were able to simply remove the update without any hitches.

Just wait for the next Remix OS for PC release. Hoping they fix that issue. I bet it gonna happen on the Remix mini, player and 10. If they don't fix this issue.

Go to settings and select reset box (do not select my remix), select erase everything , this will bring back default desktop launcher and box to factory setting leaving all your apps untouched, it will erase only accounts credentials, just log in with your account to any app if needed after resetting box.

It's fixed
I fixed it!
There will be 2 wifi apps in Settings > Apps
Go into one of them, there will be 3 dots vertically in either one of them on top right.
Uninstall the Update of the one with 3 dots, reboot your machine !

Thank you! After the update the Remix WIFI disappeared, so I was confused, but this solution worked.
