    1. How can i change the number of the desktop screens, i have 5 different screens right now but i only use 3..

    2. How can i go back to my original screen? I have tried to kill the adw launcher but it just starts again.

    Thanks

    use the home button to go back to the home screen or if u cant u can change the setting of the home button at the setting menu.
    i think u can delete the pages that u didnt use by pressing down (hold ur finger/thumb) at the main screen and then the screen can be delete or add.

    1 - This option used to be available, but unless i've now gone blind, it has disappeared from the menu!

    2 - To go back to the original home screen, go to:

    Settings -> Applications -> ADW Launcher and click 'Clear Defaults' and then click the center button and it should ask you if you want to use ADW or Home :)

    There is a cool little app called Home Switcher, does what it says, lets you choose which launcher you want to use... gives me Home which is SE, Timescape and ADW.

    Edit You are not wrong Huntleth, can't find it either. When did that go!? I only use 5 so not a prob but its nice to know you can change things up a bit.

    Press the menu button on the phone (hard key with 4 squares above it) then press the "edit" option and there you go add or remove more screens...

    Simples :)

    Its always simple when you know how! Thank you Powerkiter. Did think it a bit odd that they had removed that ability. Teach me not to read the update notes!

    :D It's the only way I knew, and trust me I was stumped for ages then they did another update and at the top of the notes after installing I just caught "To change numbe...." and pressed ok then went into help and it came up again :D
