Default Change Default Homescreen

Hey guys,

I have the galaxy s2 lte or skyrocket and the phone has the home screen set to default 4. Instead of having 7 screens i want to have 5 and thus making 3 the default. Does anyone know how to do this.


Many thanks

tap the home key and hit edit. Then you can move home screens around and delete them.

So I assume you figured out how to delete unnecessary screens. So while in the edit screen mode (where you see the multiple screens and have the ability to add or delete screens), to make a different screen the "home" screen, touch the menu capacitive button. You'll then see "Set as Home" banner just above the capacitive buttons (this is where the "Remove" trash can icon used to be). Touch "Set as Home", then select/touch which screen you want to make the new Home screen, then touch "Done" down below. You should then see the little house icon on the screen you selected.

Somehow I change the image on the swipe away screen when I was changing my background but haven't figured out how to change it again. Anybody know while we are on the subject?

You can change the lock screen wallpaper by hitting the menu button, select settings, display, screen display, lock screen wallpaper. Select your wallpaper and hit save.

Widgetlocker lockscreen, and your favorite wallpaper Download from Google Play. I have this on my homescreen. You can customize the crap out of it, by the way.

You have to click on the little house icon for the home screen you want to use as default when you are in edit mode. This was the case on my S2 Skyrocket after I updated the software a month ago.
