This is for an Mi Pad running MIUI 7. The default home screen is the first one which allows only widgets & not apps. Googling around, several sites say that you can change the def home screen - i.e. make the 2nd or any other screen the home screen by doing the 3 finger swipe and pinch. I even found videos which show this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7QGDQTYbGw
But when I do this, it shows up other options -> Move App, Widgets, Wallpaper, Effects (this is supposed to shown for the 2 finger pinch). For me both 2 finger and 3 finger pinch brings this up.
What am I doing wrong?
