Items keep appearing on the home page

Hi:

      Every time I go to my home page, there are APS and books there that I did not put there (they are on my Nook, but didn't want them on the home page).  I delete them from the page, then later they reappear.  Others appear on the home page anytime I use them.  Is there a way to stop this?  It's annoying to have to keep cleaning up these icons every day.

Re: Items keep appearing on the home page

I think this is a known bug in the new 1.4.1 (along with the reappearing deleted emails). I hope I'm wrong and someone can help us. I find both issues annoying.

Re: Items keep appearing on the home page

I am running 1.4.1 and don't have that issue. It's not related to the email thing.

 

Check under Settings > Home and make sure that, under "Daily Shelf Items" you have "Recently opened Library Items" unchecked.

Yes, the daily shelf and email bugs are different. But I've seen both widely discussed here after the 1.4.1 update.

 

Re: the apps: I have the box unchecked. Yet when I go to apps and do a check Check for Updates, then go back to the home page, I have three recently downloaded apps reappear after I've repeatedly Removed them from Home. I can go to the apps page then back to the home page and they're not there--but if in apps, I check for updates (and find no updates available), I have three apps that reappear on the home page. I think that all three reappearing apps are apps that I downloaded and installed after the 1.4.1 update so maybe you won't see deleted apps reappearing on the home page until you've installed some new apps--then you may see them pop up again each time you check for new apps.

 

Besides having unchecked the "recently opened apps to home page" box, note that I've not opened or run any of the three--yet they reappear.

 

I believe I'm seeing a bug in the 1.4.1 update here although I agree that by unchecking the box, it should solve one of Cindy's problems, the one where her recently used apps reappear.

Thanks CraigAZ, I hadn't seen the report before on the stuff showing up on the home screen, so I didn't realize it was common. Indeed, I agree that it sounds like a bug of some kind. Although it's not universal, as I have not experienced it (and I've done app installs after the 1.4.1. upgrade). And I assume you've done the full reboot routine and all that... and tried archiving and re-installing them?

 

I'd still recommend some of the other posters check their settings, though, just to be sure that's out of the way.

Re: Items keep appearing on the home page

Add me to the list. It is only happening with apps not books for me. Even though my settings are not checked to add things to the daily shelf etc. Any used or updated app is added to my homescreen. If I have several I just go in to settings and clear the shelf there, a bit quicker.
