Manage Home Screen App Icons

Move and delete app icons from the home screen. Sort icons in folders for more convenient use.

Move an app icon or folder: On the home screen, touch and hold an app icon or folder until your Phone vibrates, then drag it to any position on the home screen.

Delete an app icon: On the home screen, touch and hold the icon of the app you want to uninstall until your Phone vibrates, then drag it to Uninstall. Follow the onscreen prompts to delete the app.

To ensure that the system runs normally, some pre-installed system apps cannot be uninstalled.

Lock home screen layout: Open Settings, go to Home screen & wallpaper > Home screen settings, and enable Lock layout.

Create a folder: On the home screen, touch and hold an app icon until your Phone vibrates, then drag it on top of another icon. The two icons will be placed in a new folder.



Delete a folder: Open the folder, touch , deselect all the apps, then touch OK. The folder will be deleted and all app icons in the folder will be moved to your home screen.

Rename a folder: Open the folder and touch the folder name to enter a new name.

Add or remove app icons from a folder: Open the folder, touch , select the apps you wish to add to the folder, deselect those you wish to remove, and then touch OK. The selected app icons will be added to the folder and deselected apps will be removed from the folder.

Another way to remove an app icon from a folder is to touch and hold the icon in the folder until your Phone vibrates, then drag it to an empty space on the home screen.
