    I have created folders (strange procedure) and tied up my primary screen so that is plenty of room.

    I can't figure out how to move icons from the second screen to the first screen.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the help. I did try that, it seemed so obvious. There is a trick to it though, you have to hold the icon over the edge of the screen but not your finger. If you go to far, the icon bounces back. Go figure.

    How about moving folders across screens?

    I've tried it using the same way as moving apps but it doesn't work. So now I've got a couple of screens that are empty except for 1 folder. This happened when I put the collection of apps into folders as I've sorted the apps in ways meaningful to me.

    Folders are moved the same way.. Press hold til wiggle then drag down and over the edge..hold until screen scrolls. Gotta be smooth and slow

    Huh, Pooschey - I can drag folders across different screens with no trouble. You do have to wait for a bit for the screen to move ... but it does work.

    Oh, got it! I didn't hold the folder till it was wriggling.

    BTW, I just realised I can't post reply using my Atomic Browser.:mad:
