Welcome to the forums extremeLegend101. You should just be able to go back to the Playstation Home Icon on your XMB and select it to install. Let us know if that works for you, or not.

If you already have it installed and you want to uninstall it before a fresh new install, press triangle on the Home logo and select delete. Then follow Julian's instruction.

* By deleting the application you will not lose any purchases or rewards.

If you're trying to figure out how to redownload the Home application, here are a few steps you can follow.

Step 1.  While on your PS3 account go over to PSN.  There you'll see the Home logo.  It should be a light blue color.

Step 2.  Press the X button, wait a bit and press the X button to OK it.

Step 3.  It'll ask if you want to download the feature, Press X on Yes.

It'll now install. 


If you're on Home.

You can change your cache size, and clear your cache.  As well without having to quit Home and deleting Home.

How to do it:

Step 1: Press start.

Step 2: Hover over to Options.

Step 3: Scroll down to Cache.
