Learn how to move and rearrange app icons, or launchers, and widgets on the Home screen. Add new launchers, use the Favorites tray to view the same launchers on all home screen pages, and add and remove icons from the Favorites tray. Create a folder to deal with too many icons on the Home screen. Use folders to organize similar apps. Change a folder's name to reflect its contents. Add widgets to the home screen.
