    I know that this is probably a stupid question, but I am completely
    new to Android development. I have worked through a number of the
    examples, and now have a bunch of apps on my simulated phone. I would
    like to remove some of those apps (to reduce the clutter), but cannot
    figure out how to do it. If I click on the app icon and hold down the
    mouse button, the screen changes to the main screen, and there appears
    to be a trash can at the bottom. However, dragging the icon to the
    trash can seems to have no effect.

    How are you installing them to your emulator?

    hit the MENU button on the emulator, then click Settings --> Applications --> Manage Applications --> click on the application you want to remove --> Uninstall --> OK --> OK

    that's for 2.0, if you are using an earlier version, steps may be a little different.
