    I just downloaded the newest os and noticed that I cannot drag apps from one screen to the next. I can move them around there current screen but I can't drag them onto another screen.

    Just drag them to the edge of the screen and wait half a sec. The screen should move.

    Should work. Don't know why you'd have an issue with it. It's worked every time I did it. I created several new folders so I was dragging quite a few icons from one screen to the next.

    Are you making sure that you're touching the icon and moving in a downward motion towards the corner of the screen? That seems to be the key.

    i think i figured it out. for me the key is to drag to the edge of the screen (doesn't have to be the corner) SLOWLY till about half the icon disappears off the screen, and then just HOLD it for a second, and it moves to the next screen.

    i was doing this thing where i'd slide it and it would bounce back and not move to the other screen...guess it was moving too fast.

    ah the learning curve of the new OS. thanks for the tips guys...
