Two Quick Ways to Jump to the Apple TV Home Screen

by Sarah Dobson on April 27, 2020

Imagine that you’ve just finished configuring your Apple TV’s screensaver in the Settings app, and it’s time to navigate back to the Home screen. The most obvious route is to reverse out by clicking the Menu button on the Siri Remote to move up a level, waiting for the screen to load, clicking Menu again, and so forth until you finally get back to the Home screen. There’s a better way! In fact, there are two. One is to press and hold the Mic button and say “Go home.” Or, for an even faster method, press and hold the Menu button for slightly longer than usual—about 1–2 seconds—to switch instantly to the Home screen.
