    Hi guys...please see the pic attached.

    As you see my icons are spread over many screens... how can I move them? As you see one of them occupies the whole screen and then the next screen was created for the rest of the icons...

    Hope I am explaining this properly.....

    Thanks in advance :) :D:thumbup:

    Just drag them over and you can also make a folder but dragging an app in another app

    If you long press on the icon you can then drag it wherever you want it to go. If you don't want an icon on your screen at all just drag it to the top of your screen and remove it. If you want to add an icon you simply long press on the icon in your app drawer and place it on the screen you want.

    If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

    I agree, use folders. You can even use them down in the dock.

    That's how the app drawer works, it shows all our your apps. Some launchers let you customize it.

    There are different view options available in the app drawer that may get you where you want to go. Just press the menu button from the app drawer and try the different options. I personally prefer the alphabetical grid.

    In addition, you can also create folders in the app drawer. That function is also available from the menu in the app drawer.

    It isn't really clear what you would like to do with them, but those are some options.

    Good Luck,
