Home Button missing

My home button on the buttom left of my Motorola Droid Xyboard has just suddenly gone missing i didnt change any options and i cant seem to find an option to get it back...any ideas? Only way for me to back to home screen or get out of an app is to turn off my tablet and turn it back on and its very annoying.

Re: Home Button missing

If you could, would you provide a screenshot of this phenomenon?

Also, has your device been modded (ever)?

Have you updated any apps recently?

Re: Home Button missing

Hello SuperSofa,

This type of an issue can be caused by a Launcher app or a rogue app that has taken control of your navigation. There is a free utility in the Google Play store called "DefaultApp Reset" (Linked Here) that will reset your tablet to the default desktop and restore the navigation buttons. You can also reassign a new default launcher using this app.
