    I just got a gtablet and can't put it down. I'm also new to the forum. I tried to search but had no luck with my question.
    I installed an app called Mario Ringtones. Turns out it is not for the gtablet but is intended for phones. I uninstalled it but the icon stayed on my classic view workspace. Stupidly, I installed it aging thinking when I uninstalled it, it would go away. Guess What? Now I have TWO of the silly icons. If I press on either icon, I get a message that the program is not installed.
    Does anyone know how to delete an unwanted Icon?
    Thanks

    I had this happen with Twitter and a reboot fixed it.

    A little more searching and I figured it out by reading a few more posts.
    I held my finger on the icon for a few seconds. It got bigger and then a trash bucket opened on the right side of the screen. I just dragged it in and its gone.
    Great Forum and I'm sure it will help out a lot.
