    Do you mean the home screen, or the app drawer? Android lets you add folders to the home screen and then drag apps to them. Or if you don't like the generic folder icon, there are app organizer/folder organizer type apps that offer additional features and eye candy. I don't know any way to add folders to the app drawer, but icons can be hidden as described in the previous post.

    What if the app that hides all unwanted apps is actually not wanted? Would it just hide itself?

    i never heard of an app drawer. how do i create this, and yes all i want to do is eliminate the clutter by moving all those apps that i can't uninstall. i don't care about the generic look of a folder.

    thx

    The app drawer is what is displayed when you press the Menu icon on your home screen and it displays all your app's in alphabetical order.

    You don't create it. It's already there. :D

    OK, it sounds like you are talking about the home screen then. If you want to get rid of those icons entirely, drag them to the bottom of the screen and put them in the trash can that will appear. This won't uninstall the app though, and you can recreate the icon at any time. Uninstallation is done either from the Market or from Settings/Applications/Manage Applications. The procedure hfor getting to the app drawer has already been explained so I won't do it again.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the manufacturer of your phone has a manual for it online. You'll find lots of useful tips there.
