Default How do I reduce the number of home screens

Hello there my friends in the this wonderful Android forum that I feel I am going to be using a lot of...

Is there anyway for me to eliminate 3 of the 5 home screens on my Samsung Galxy Tab 8.9 because I don't use them.


Gratzi,
Spaz

Welcome to Android Forums!

With the stock TouchWiz launcher the number of home screens is fixed. But you can use something like Nova Launcher (download at Google Play)that is more customizable. I'm using Nova Launcher on my 8.9 as I type this with only 3 home screens. But I don't know if TouchWiz widgets will work with a 3rd-party launcher. That may be the only downside.

Nova launcher is for ICS only. My tab is still sporting honeycomb.

Just download Go launcher ex and the adjust setting.
