Press Xbox Button Once to Go Home

With the new update it took away the whole purpose of the home button. going to the home screen. it needs to do what the name suggests.

    Maybe double tapping the home button would be usefull, as there are times I simply want to go home instead of using the guid.

    No this is bad. We don't even need the dashboard, the guide is what we need and have, so using the one press for the guide is perfect.

    Maybe double press for home instead, because all the functionality we need can be accessed with the side bar.

    One press for home and double press for guide was fine before and I preferred that too. I also liked being able to go the Community tab and have the game still open so I can kill time while it's loading, fast travelling, in between rounds or whatever, then I could press home once to snap to the game screen and press A to get straight back to playing.

    At first I was hating the way the home button was changed.
    But now I'm used to it and to be honest.. The current behaviour of the homebutton is better dan it was.

    Agree...it's added steps to getting to the home page. Why make it more complicated? Worst update in a while.

    I agree with the people on this feed saying that the newest update is the most proper..i dont understand why its so complicated for some when there is literally SO much more functionality the way it is now. Yes, perhaps double tapping the xbox button would be nice, but it is quite as easy to press Guide+A+A..im recording and taking pics like a champ now , not to mention being able to access my pins for easy jump-In/Out gameplay. Please dont change it back microsoft

    Disagree. Having it pop the left menu gives you options. Screenshot, record clip etc. if you want to hope back to home screen just hit the Xbox button then the "A" button twice. You don't even have to think about it. Home button-A-A. Simple.

    disagree. keep it popping the left menu. this is more in line with the experience from 360.

    No, once you get used to it you realise that the dashboard has everything you need in a smaller space and you can do things much faster

    Maybe what about, having the option on your Xbox to have this feature on or off, you can decide how many times you have to press the home button to go to your Home Screen.

    I think this is a good idea of doing it, like that, those who don't want this to happen, have the option to turn this feature off and not accidentally going to the home screen.
