    It's beaten me!
    From one of the 7 "Application" pages, I want to move a shortcut to the "Home" page.
    I have done it once, but can't remember how I did it.
    I can move one from the 'lower' section of the Home page to the 'upper' section, but not 'across'

    Can someone save my sanity.
    Using Android 2.3
    Thanks
    Morris

    Nearly there.
    I had a 'blank' spot on the Home Screen so I managed to 'long hold' and drag a shortcut from Apps page1.

    I can drag a shortcut from Home Screen1 to Home screen2, but can I drag it to Apps page 1 or 2 etc?

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Or you could use another launcher, (launcher pro / open home / adw launcher) and hide apps from your draw, and sort by alphabet or whatever. Generally, just long press on your home screen to create your shortcut.
