    Do this...
    1. Turn the phone off.
    2. Hold Power and Volume Down
    3. English (or pick any language that you want)
    4. Wipe data & cache
    5. Wipe cache
    6. Yes
    7. Reboot

    And are you using substratum???

    I guess you have to go for factory reset...
    Looks like some app is causing this...

    Thanks for this Gopal.

    Below steps solved my issue.

    Install Nova Launcher from Play Store.
    once you have the Nova launcher installed:
    - start it (so it becomes your current launcher)
    - on any screen tap on an empty area and hold it until the Widgets option appears at the bottom of the screen
    - click Widgets and from the Nova Launcher group tap and hold Activities -> drag it anywhere on the screen to create a widget/shortcut
    - in the Activities list that appears after you drop the widget, scroll down to Setup Wizard -> click it and then select the .SetupWizardUpgradeActivity
    - now you have created the shortcut; just tap it to launch the Setup Wizard and go through the wizard steps. After you complete it, the buttons should be back to normal again.

    Strange solution as stated earlier, but it worked for me! Thanks a lot, I was going crazy.

    I had that same problem ("show recents", "go home" and Settings icon on notification bar not working), which appeared after my phone crashed while I was MTP'ing files from my phone to my laptop. It rebooted into TWRP for no reason, and then booted into system, with FB Messenger opening by default and intercepting my SMSes (a feature which I've never allowed). Weird behaviors ...
