    I don't know what I hit to make this show up but on my app screens at the header I have "Apps" and next to it "Widgets"..and also an arrow down symbol.

    I never noticed this here before...how do I remove it?

    it sets above the apps and below the time and battery header.

    Any idea??

    That's the standard touchwiz app draw, you can change it to an alphabetical list my hitting the soft key menu and change view

    From what you describe it sounds exactly like this:


    Which is the standard app draw. What launcher are you using?

    thats the default touchwiz it lets u add widgets to ure home screen or apps to ure home screen just press on the app/widget for a second it will then show u ure homescreens and ask u where to place it.

    Its been there the whole time you just havent noticed it before :p

    A launcher is a 'skin' that sits over Android that allows it to look and feel different to vanilla android. Samsung use TouchWiz, whereas HTC use Sense etc. You can get different ones from the Play store which can change the way your home and app draw screens look and act.

    As others have said - that is the App Drawer for TouchWiz, just hit you home button and you'll be back to your normal home screen.
