    I am a newbie here, I have just purchased the above tablet, and have a few questions to ask so hope there is someone out their that can help me?

    On the home screen there is the clock weather etc big square
    how do I delete this? I know you drag to the top, but this particualr one does not move.

    Do I have to download any codec? I have been told I could down load the MX Player?

    It has Polaris Office? Can I load microsoft instead?

    I have downloaded BBC IPlayer but it will play a little then stops it keeps doing this, so how can you watch a complete film if it keeps doing this?

    I cannot download ITVPlayer? I have got adobe.

    Do you need to download anything to watch movies etc?

    There are things on the tablet but not really sure what they are? looked at the manual does not really say?

    Sometimes when I lay the tablet on the table and tab the icons there is no reaction, yet if I pick it off the table it does react, but sometimes I have to press the icons lots of times and get frustrated because it does not work.

    I have set the tap pressure to high, do not know what it had done, as it was set on medium, I set it on high as I thought it would mean a quicker touch.

    It would really be good if someone could do something on Yourtube showing what and how to use this tablet, as this is the first one that I have, and am totally confused, as to what it can do, and what is needed to download.

    I have downloaded some games, which is saved in the Apps section but also on the home page, why in two places can one be deleted

    I think this is enough, but if you can help it would be great

    I know this post is a month old but I figured I'd try to help out.

    Long press (hold your finger on it) and drag it to the trash bin (or "Delete") when it appears.

    Microsoft does not make an Office suite for Android.

    This is likely due to buffering. Is your internet connection slow?

    Not sure how these 2 are related. You can download any number of apps to accomplish the same goal, if there are 2 or more installed it will pop up a menu asking which you'd like to use.

    What kind of movies? Downloaded ones, streamed ones?

    Such as....?

    Try setting it lower. Higher pressure may indicate LOWER sensitivity, lower pressure would be HIGHER sensitivity if that's the case.

    In the Play Store, in the options, you can set it to not automatically add a shortcut to your home screen. If you remove the app from the Apps section, that uninstalls the app. You can have them in both places, having them on the home screens makes access to the apps a little faster.
