    Hi all,

    How can I highlight multiple desktop icons at once? And once done, can I "mass" delete them by dragging to the trash like I can with only one?

    I don't think there's a multiple select feature on the home screens.

    That's a real shame... but the related area I really wish had a multi-select feature is when adding application shortcuts to the home screen. I've installed so many apps that there's a 15-30 second delay to actually display the list of installed apps from which to pick... and since I have to do this over and over for each shortcut I want to add, it's a very frustrating and lengthy process.

    Since building the scrollable list of apps appears to be such a resource-intensive task, you'd think the "add application shortcut" function would at least cache the results temporarily so subseqent shortcuts could be added much more quickly than the firstt!

    Always wondered why loading the application list takes so long when adding shortcuts.
