Hi-Launcher is equipped with a deadlock prevention mechanism. Imagine a situation that you use the Start button tap Menu trigger, losing access to your original Start Menu. You also forgot to put Programs, File Explorer, Hi-Launcher, or a similar item in the Menu that would let you access Hi-Launcher Settings. Consequently you have no ability to disable Hi-Launcher nor have access to programs other than those in your Menu. You may cope with such deadlock in two ways. To run Hi-Launcher Settings you can:
- Press Ctrl+H over Hi-Launcher's Menu.
- Press-and-hold Ctrl while dismissing any message box triggered by Hi-Launcher's trigger.
Use the screen keyboard to press Ctrl+H or Ctrl. Once you are back in Hi-Launcher Settings you may re-design your Menu and fix the problems.
On Windows Mobile 6.5, even if you use the Start button tap trigger, you can still access the original Start Screen: tapping on the button will trigger Hi-Launcher, while tapping to the right of it will open the original Start Screen.
