Default Restoring Application Icon in Home Screen

*** MODERATOR .. Is it possible to move this thread to under HP touchpad? Sorry. Posted it in introductions ***

Team,

Need your help.

Accidentally replaced the Application icon in my home screen with another app icon. Not sure how to restore it on my just installed HP Touchpad. Now I am not able to go to the applications.

Not sure how to replace the icon.

Please help. Appreciate it

All installed and preinstalled applications are in your app drawer. Are you talking about the Android market application? If so, then open your app drawer, and long press on the app. Keep in mind, that you need to have available room for the application to be placed on the home screen.

rushrl.. thank you for your response. Appreciate it.

I believe I lost the app drawer icon itself. Home screen had 5 icon slots.
1. Phone
2. Empty
3. App Drawer ( I believe. Sorry I an new to Android)
4. Empty
5. Web.

I dragged another app icon and accidentally dropped it on the 3rd slot which was the app drawer. Hope it helps. Thanks again

I just realized that the HP touchpad doesn't have Android. Sorry about that. I thought you were missing thr market application. I'll get back to you when I find some info on how to do this. Sit tight

HP Touchpad can be installed with Android. I have a dual boot with WebOS and Android.

rushrl.. I believe I got the answer in this forum

On your home screen or an empty place on your desk:
menu -> add > Custom shortcut
Then:
Choose your activity:launcher action -> open/close App Drawer.
You can change your icon if you want.
Then, just drag your new shortcut to the place you want. That's it !
