This is the second launcher installed on your T8-S Plus.

When you see this sort of option, until you’re certain which launcher you’d like to use, select the Just Once option.

Until you select the Always option, each time you press the home button on your remote control, you’ll be asked to confirm which one to use.

If you have installed a 3rd party launcher, the following still applies, however you’ll see an extra entry in the list of available launchers.

How To Change The Launcher

First, click the Settings icon from your launcher’s homescreen (both launchers have this shortcut). If you are using a 3rd party launcher and can’t see an icon of a cog, locate and open the list of all installed applications, then click Settings.

From here, we need to go to “More setting”.

Now we need the Home (in the Device section) entry, please click it.

Finally, select the launcher you want to use instead of the current one, and return to the previous screen. Now press the home button to test everything has turned out well.

    Hi, I have a T8 Droidbox and trying to load another Launcher screen, using instructions in “Changing the Launcher on a T8-S Plus” (the only one available). Can’t find the “Home” directory anywhere, In the Devices section there is Sound, Display, Storage, Apps, Permissions

      Please install your preferred launcher via the Play Store or an APK file. Once it is installed, press the home button on your remote control.
      The first time, we suggest you click the new launcher and select the JUST ONCE option.
      If it works well, press the home button again, this time select ALWAYS. (The Home entry in Settings is not present in older Android 4.4 devices.)

        Thanks Very Much for replying so quickly.
        Your solution (above) worked a treat.

      So what do I look for on the Playstore. Where is Mediabox Launcher.
