All of a sudden whenever I want to leave an app I get this screen that needs me to choose between touchwiz home and touchwiz easy home. When I choose one it says go to app manager/clear defaults/tap clear. This of course does nothing and I am stuck in this circle.
any help out there?

After trying new launchers , resetting factory , clearing defaults on set default launcher on application manager and no results .... I finally remove the last update of the google search and Voila !! Solved ! It makes the touch wiz very unstable . Go to the google store and uninstall it , it won't remove google search altogether , it will only remove the update ! It has been 3 days .... So happy !!

I just had the same problem and maybe someone else might need this I went into Settings there is a subcategory Devise on there I went to Easy mode I turned it on and then off and I got the Touchwiz message off... It was driving me crazy so that's why I posted this someone might be going crazy as well.

I've had the same isuue since 'upgrading' to Lollipop - when exiting an app, I'm asked if I want to use TouchWiz Home 'always' or 'just once' (or an alternative, which on my phone is just Easy Home). Selecting 'always' doesn't stop the message recurring. I've also tried clearing the app defaults, to no avail. I've even run a complete factory reset (to fix some other problems that arrived with Lollipop) but this one remains.

I thought I'd fixed it by following the advice (on this page) to switch to Easy Home and then back to TouchWiz Home again - that seemed to work, but when the phone ws switched off overnight and on again in the morning the message came back.

It really is driving me nuts now, so any suggestions welcome!

Hello
thanks for sharing your experience.
i am facing the same problem on my Note 3, and also Note 5 which i bought yesterday, and it just drives me crazy. I tired all advices of re-setting the device to factory settings, clear defaults apps, switch to easy then to Home mode, uninstall the last update of Google search, but no use.

any suggestion please?

thanks

Sorry that I canot offer a solution. This is a cry for help. My Samsung Note 7 worked fine for a few days and I do not know after which installation this idiotic problem came up. I did not copy data from my Note 4 to avoid just that problem.
The Google programmers did a poor job with the default app and the guys who created the TouchWiz should go and find another job.
