Adding small bookmark shortcuts to homescreen

    I've managed to create bookmarked shortcuts on my home screen but they are twice the size of normal icons.

    Is there a way to create bookmarks as a standard small sized icon on the homescreens?

    As per page 25 of the full Samsung Galaxy SII User Manual, downloadable from here:-

    Support for Galaxy S II SAMSUNG

    "1 Press [ ] → Add or tap and hold the empty area on the
    idle screen.
    2 Select the item category → an item:
    ●● Widgets: Add widgets to the idle screen.
    ●● Shortcuts: Add shortcuts to items, such as applications,
    bookmarks, and contacts.
    ●● Folders: Create a new folder or add folders for your
    ●● Wallpapers: Set a background image."

    Basically it's the same as adding a widget to the Home screen.

    Hope this helps. :D

    (This only works so long as you have already created the bookmark in your stock browser bookmarks... Menu > More > Add bookmark)

    Thanks ironass, but my question refers to the icon size and not how to do so.

    The only bookmarks I can seem to add are twice the size as normal icons. I was just wondering if bookmarks can be added as normal sized icons

    Sorry hawker... didn't read that through properly did I.

    I don't use bookmark shortcuts so I just added one. See what you mean. They're all bigger than the regular icons.

    Sorry, can't help you on that one I'm afraid. Can't even resize using Launcher Pro.

    No worries mate!
    Its a pity if thats the only size bookmark you can have. The homescreen would look much cleaner if they were the same size as standard icons.
