Lost launcher "picker" that pops up when I hit the home key

Hi. Long-time lurker for my last several phones... goon back to my original Touch Pro. I have most of the major launchers installed on my E4GT, and Ive always avoiding setting a default launcher, by never checking the "set as default" check box at the bottom of the pop -up screen that appears to let me choose a launcher when I hit the home hardware button.

Well, I made the mistake of using Sprint ID to (effectively) switch to the default Android launcher for a moment, then used it again to get back to TW. Now when I hit the home key, Im taken straight back to TW, without the pop-up. Anyone know how I can get the launcher selector back?

Thanks for all the knowledge and hard work on this forum.

Go into the settings menu and under applications scroll down to tw launcher and clear the default settings. That will give you back the option to select a launcher. You must have hit the check box to select as default.

If that doesn't work you can install another launcher and the popup will come back. Then uninstall the launcher.

Thanks, usable suggestions both. I used the menu method first, and of course it worked (don't I feel dumb for not finding that on my own.) Afterwards I decided to try to reproduce the problem using SprintID again. It was easily reproducible, and this time I know I didn't inadvertently set a default. Strange...

After that, I decided to install Hi Launcher (which ain't bad actually), and that brought back "mah newb launcher picker" as well.

I appreciate and will thank both of you

That my friend is why I do not use the Sprint ID app. Your thanks is appreciated.
