It makes certain assumptions that should not be taken for granted. It is like a closed shop where you have to know beforehand what you want and ask for it but you cannot browse easily. It needlessly takes extra clicks to navigate the dash. It seems they tried to imitate the Mac’s interface in some respects but they took the wrong bits and left out the right ones. I am also using Gnome now because at least it is heading in the right direction but I hope it improves feature wise as some of the extensions should really be built in.

I’m very likely misunderstanding the problem you are seeing. In my case, “back” takes me back to whatever activity was active before the target activity. So for example, let’s say the activity stack looks like this, A->B->C, if I then trigger the “Go Home” code from “C” and “Home” is defined as “A”, it will take me to A (without creating a new instance of A). If then I hit the ‘back’ button it takes me out of the application and onto the HC “desktop” which is what I would expect it to do.

Do let me know if you solved your issue, I’m curious as to what is going on. Thanks!

The use of

does not seem to do the trick either. I end up still able to use “Back” to navigate backwards through the stack. In essence, it appears as though the new instance is added to the stack in the same way that I would add any new Intent. “Back” still takes the user back through the stack, stepping through all of the previously visited Activities. Here is the code I am using:

private void home() {
Intent intent = new Intent(this, Main.class);

An ideas?
