    I only have one home page and do not need or want the home screen icon/page icons. How do I remove it?

    Not sure but if you could let us know what device/carrier you have, perhaps we can move this to another forum for more help:)
    Also, are you running any 3rd party launchers? If you could also post some screen shots, that would be a good help too:)

    I have a stock Galaxy s5. On the screen shot the icon is circled in red. upload_2015-6-1_20-3-34.png

    Awesome and thank you!
    I may just leave this here for the time being as this may not just be a device specific "issue". ;) (yes? no?)
    Sorry I cannot help ya, but perhaps someone may chime in and if it does indeed turn out to be a device specific issue, then we can move it to the S5 forums for more help.

    To my knowledge it can't be removed. Because it's the "main" "home screen"

    You could try going with Nova launcher in place of the stock Samsung one.
