    Hi Catavolt,



    This was not about stepping back to the home screen, simply about following a correct path from shortcuts back up the tree. For example, in the new Titan skin I was in the settings menu. After a little while of going through the various options I wanted to go back out as I actually don't care for hotkeys, simple drill down the tree drill up the tree is what should work... Unfortunately it took me a number of 'windows' to jump back to the home screen as it was cycling through the previous screens. All this post was about was a simple heirachal tree structure for menu progression :) As it seems I'm in the minority here, I'll pipe down!

    Settings is a very special case, because the structure of the windows was made according to the settings in MP Config.
    So navigating in settings may be a bit annoying.

    EDIT: Titan uses a skin concept in settings which makes the issue more obvious than e.g. DefaultWide ;)

    I will have a try with default wide because like the OP I found it a little confusing and annoying to sometimes appear to be back tracking through windows you cant even remember opening. The settings menu seems very unintuitive to me
