If you’ve been using Android phone, most probably you’ve seen the “Complete action using” option menu.
This menu appears when the Android system has more than one app that can perform a specific action.
For those who have yet to see this, let me give you 2 examples and some screen captures so that you’ve a clearer picture of what I’m trying to say.
The first example is when you want to watch a video on Google. You’ll get prompted with the “Complete action using” menu of a list of apps (that can play a video), when you click a video from the Google search result.
Another example, which I would like to explain in more detail, is witnessed after the installation of the Skype app. You’ll see the “Complete action using” menu when you try to dial a contact from the phonebook.
To continue, you need to pick the app you prefer. In this tutorial, I picked Phone (,making a call using mobile line).
And to avoid seeing this annoying menu every time you make a call, you can tick the Use by default for this action checkbox.
Now, what if you’ve made a wrong selection and saved it as default ? Can you get back the same prompt to make a new selection ?
Fortunately, this is possible. You just need to do a Clear defaults on that particular app.
Go to Home Settings > Application Manager > All > Phone > Clear defaults.
What if you’ve wrongly selected Skype instead ? Then go to Home Settings > Application Manager > All > Skype > Clear defaults
I hope you get the idea.
