Default [Resolved] How to change the dock items?

Can someone PLEASE tell me how to change the dock items? I've tried dragging them out of the dock and onto the 'remove' icon at the top but it just replicates the icon on the home screen! I'm trying to replace the stock internet browser with Chrome and cannot do this - it's sooooooo frustrating! The phone's locked to Three so I don't know if that has anything to do with it!

Do it from the app drawer rather than the homes creen, It works then.

Default Replacing Dock apps

I just got my AT&T HTC One earlier today and I can't figure out how to replace the stock browser in the dock with a different one.

I'm not an Android novice so I'm pretty surprised with my inability to figure this one out.

If I try to move it off the dock, it just places it on the screen but without removing the icon from the dock. I usually use Nova prime but I sort of like the new Sense and I was hoping to keep that as my launcher.

Does anybody know how to do it?

Thanks!

Try dragging the app into the app drawer (either open the app drawer and drag it out to the other apps, or maybe also drag it to the app drawer icon on a homescreen)

Drag the browser of your choice to the dock and add it to the current browser. It'll then create a dock folder. Open the folder and drag the stock browser to the app draw

Open your app drawer then long press the browser, drag and drop it into the App drawer. Then long press the browser you want and drag and drop it onto the dock. You have to have the app drawer open to do this, otherwise it just replicates the icon on a home screen.

Wink Edit Launch Bar

Can't edit the Launch Bar from the home screen or settings anymore.

Open up your app drawer, and THEN you can drag apps in & out of your Launch Bar.

I just did a drag and drop to alter the bottom 4 pps.

THe only way to add an app to the launch bar is from the all apps screen. From there you can drag and drop on the launch bar.

Default How to change quicklaunch icons on HTC One

Hi all,

I purchased an HTC One yesterday and LOVE it ! However, it has the 5 default quicklaunches (phone SMS apps internet camera)

However, i would like to change this, as i dont use the default messaging app.

Can someone tell me how to change these ? i have tried dragging it off the task bar however it just replicates onto the homescreen and the quicklaunch bar, and i cant seem to find a way to exchange it with a different shortcut

Thanks all :-)!

Thanks to whoever moved my post here, figured it out thanks to this thread!

On my EVO LTE there was a setting to hide the 4 shortcuts at the bottom from your lock screen only. I don't see that setting on this phone. No big deal but on my old phone I hid them from being on my lock screen.

Default Home Screen has reset and cannot customise

Hey everyone. I got my HTC one a few days ago and I got a message saying something along the lines off "I new SIM card has been dectected, do you want to install SIM apps". I clicked asked later and customeised the home screen and the 'toolbar' at the bottom (i switched the stock messenger app for whatsapp).

The messege came up again today and I clicked install. I now have an app called Best Deals and my home screen was reset, the wallpaper stayed the same but the apps disappeared. Now I can't swap the messenger app for whatsapp.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I've attached a picture of the 'toolbar thing.

You should be able to change them while you have the app drawer open.
