    After MIUI removed the default programs settings, I have no idea how to change the launcher. I am using 2 different launchers, but with that setting, I was able to control when pressing the home button to open which launcher, but now I accidentally clicked on the button which chooses the default launcher, but now I have no idea how to reset that.

    I really do not wish to uninstall the launcher and reinstall it, or re-install the rom.

    Is there anyway to get to this?

    Or even maybe have an extended settings for that? Andy? d: I am using extended settings, and is making MIUI really great, but removing that setting is such a downer... ):

    From what i've seen there's usually an option to close the current launcher when u go to settings..

    Can you be more specific?

    I checked all the settings, unless I missed it. The Default Programs, use to show it in the Settings though.

    Go to settings, programs, manage applications, all. Find the launcher that is your current default launcher and select it. Scroll down and you will see a launch by default section. Select clear defaults. Now the next time you press home you will be prompted to select which launcher to use.

    An alternative options would be to install something like home switcher from the market, which would shortcut some of the steps above.

    Settings > Apps > Select Default Launcher > Clear Defaults > Click "Home" > Select the launcher you wish to use.

    This setting has been taking out as of 1.8.12, the last version with this setting is 1.8.5. And I'm at the latest version which is 1.8.19.
