    I'm a simple gal--I just want one or two home screens on my new Motorola Atrix. I downloaded Go Launcher Ex and can see it's easy to add screens, but how do I eliminate them? I read somewhere there should be an "x" in the upper right corner of each screen and touching that will delete the screen, but I don't have an "x". I only have icons on one screen right now, and that's really the only screen I want to use. I like the clean look. Is there somewhere I can get a comprehensive, complete instruction set for Go Launcher Ex?

    Thanks in advance,
    Lynn

    Best bet, IMHO, is to leave the unused screens there but simply remove all the icons/widgets from them. They'll still be there with your wallpaper but will be blank. I only use two myself.

    Greetings 7notrump

    Press your menu key to pull up the Go launcher options.

    Press the edit function.

    When the screen comes up showing all your available home screens, press and hold on the one you wish to get rid off. A trashcan option should show up. drag the home screen to the trashcan. Easy as that.

    If you ever choose to add more, just press the + screen option and a homescreen will be added.

    Hope this helps.

    Just press the home key, all of your screens should show in a preview. Press and drag the ones you don't want to the trash can.
