    I'm new to the HTC Desire. There are two(!) things I don't understand.
    1. To delete a widget, you're supposed to drag it to the phone icon, and both the phone icon and the widget will turn red, and it'll be deleted. It doesn't work for me.
    2. The Home screen has got a fair number of shortcuts that I've put there, but the other screens have things like Contacts, News, Weather, which I haven't put there, and are not available for personalization.

    I'm sure there will be more as I go on! And I find the keyboard difficult to type accurately!

    1: Long press on the widget.

    You now gain control of the placement, The bottom phone bar now says "remove".

    2: While holding the widget, drag your finger to the bottom bar and release the widget when it turns red.

    As for the keyboard, you could try holding it sideways giving yourself larger keys.

    Have a look on the app store. You'll be surprised how many different keyboards are available to suit different needs.
