- [Instructor] Behold the typical Android home screen.…It features several parts.…Atop the screen is the status bar.…It shows notification icons on the left,…status icons on the right.…The center of the home screen is festooned…with launchers and widgets.…A launcher, also called an icon,…represents an app.…Tap the launcher to start or launch…the associated app.…A widget is a tiny window that displays information…or controls some Android feature.…
It could be the same size as a launcher…or it could fill the screen.…At the bottom of the home screen…dwell three navigation icons.…They are back, home and recent.…The back icon is your Android's reverse gear.…It backs you up.…Tap the back icon to cancel a menu,…to dismiss an on screen keyboard,…return to the previous screen…or to back out of an app.…I'm going to press and hold the power lock key…to display the device options menu.…
To cancel I tap the back navigation icon…and the menu goes away.…The recent icon displays a list of recently opened…or currently running apps.…The official term for this screen is the overview.…
