***HELP!!!***

 

I just watched this video, followed the instructions EXACTLY, & now (when I hit the home button) my screen shows 'Select launcher' --> 'TouchWiz home' 'TouchWiz easy home' (2 icons). What is this about???!!!

No reason to panic at all. Just a normal message when the phone's default launcher is not selected. 

Choose TouchWiz home. This will show you the normal phone launcher( user interface).

I apparently just pressed the wrong one (I got tired of seeing the popup) & now everything's HUGE!!! I'M SO TIRED OF THIS PHONE!!! I'm ready to pay full price for an iPhone just to get away from this phone. I'm SO beyond frustrated right now! I try to fix one problem just to end up in the middle of another problem & to have ALL OF MY APPS WHERE I DON'T WANT THEM!!! How do I switch it to TouchWiz home?

Pull down on the screen and select the settings gear. Then right on top right area you should see the icon Easy Mode. Click it and select Standard Mode. 

Try to not get frustrated. It will get better after you learn a few basics of the os and ways to help yourself. Until then there is this community that can help. 

Let me know what else you need help with.

There's no 'Easy Mode' visible in that area.

That worked PERFECTLY!!! tyvm!!! ur AMAZING!!! Truthfully, it's mostly the battery life & call quality/reception that's making me want to switch back to iPhone. I've been told that the S7 has MUCH better battery life than the S7 Edge, but I'm afraid to get another Android based phone. This is my 3rd attempt in the past 5 yrs & I'm thinkin' it's a strike out.Smiley Sad

I haven't read the entire long thread but, for me, after tryng everything, today, I finally found the cuplprit. I use DU utilities and it was definitely something called DU Swipe that was causing the problem. I simply switched to option off and itsthe 'Screen overlay' problem, immediately.
