Getting rid of "special" home screen

    I'm coming to the Tab S 8.4 from a LG G-Pad 8.3 Google Edition and also have a Nexus 5. IOW, I'm used to plain-vanilla Android and not having so much manufacturer's crud taking up home screen space, etc. So the first thing I did was to delete all those pre-installed widgets and disable a bunch of built-in apps that I'll never use.

    The one thing I can't figure out is that special-looking home screen to the "left" of the main home screen. What is that and how can I get rid of it? I think it has something to do with the built-in Office app. I was able to drag a bunch of the contents of the frames off to delete them, but can't get rid of the last one on the screen. Is there a way to clear off all of this stuff?

    Not sure about how to delete it in your launcher, but you could always install Nova or Apex launcher and not have to worry about it anymore.
     
  3. I couldn't make that last widget and tbat page go away either.How annoying. Thanks Samsung. Best to do what the last post said and get Nova or Apex. Touchwiz is crap anyways...
