Is there any way to press the * button and get the same options that you would on the Home screen?

On the Search option (or perhaps any other menu option other than Home), it would be great to be able to press the * (asterisk) button and get the same options that you would if you were on the Home menu. This would make updating, removing, moving, or restarting apps easier, especially if you have a lot of channels.  Is there any current way to do this? Thank you very much!

Re: Is there any way to press the * button and get the same options that you would on the Home scree

Thank you for posting here in the Roku Community, @adwissler.

I appreciate your suggestion. I'd be happy to share more information about utilizing the star (*) button on your Roku remote.

It serves as a convenient way to access different menus and adjust various video settings. Depending on the app you're using, the Star (*) button allows you to quickly turn on subtitles and customize display and sound settings.

Furthermore, if you are on the Home screen, depending on what channel tile has been highlighted, you can remove, move, or check for updates. I suggest you try it and share your feedback with us. 

I hope you find this information helpful!

All the best,
Carly
