    I changed my browser from the stock to Operah. But everytime I hit the browser in the launcher it opens the stock one first.

    Any way to change it?

    I tried the other launching programs, I didn't like that I couldnt use the widgets that come with the phone :(

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    There are guides that detail how to change the icons on the dock. Google should be your friend here.

    I believe you can't just hit the widget named "browser." That one will always open the stock browser. You have to hit the widget for the new browser you have downloaded.

    Very easy. Open the applications menu, hit menu and change view type to customizable grid, then hit menu again and choose edit. You can change every icon in the dock besides the application one, hope this helps

    Thanks Dj,
    I gave you offical thanks as well.

    much more helpful then "google it" which for Very basic questions is a good answer, but I did trying to google this one and couldn't
