7. From the Home Screen
Quickly jump to another home screen panel
Want an easy way to switch between home panels? Leap view combines all screens into one page to quickly leap from one panel to another. From the home screen, press the Home button again or perform a pinch motion on the screen to display all home screen panels and then tap the desired home screen panel.
Add or remove home screen panels
Need more home screen panels, or cut down the amount that are there? First, access Leap view by performing a pinching motion on the screen. Once there tap Add Panel to create one, or press and hold on an existing panel and drag to Remove to get rid of one.
Tip: Using the press and hold action, move panels around to rearrange them. The panel with the home logo on it is going to be the screen accessed when you press home in the future.
Add a widget, shortcut, or folder to the Home screen
Is the home screen feeling empty? Customize the Home screen with applications, shortcuts, and widgets. First, tap and hold a vacant spot on the Home screen. Then, tap the Widgets, Apps or Shortcuts tab and simply tap the desired item to add.
Tip: Another way to add an app to the Home screen is by pressing and holding on an app icon while in All Apps, then dragging it to the desired spot on the home screen.
Using Home Screen Folders
Want to group the best apps together? Create a folder on the home screen by dragging one app icon over another and then release. The two icons will then be placed into a folder. To add more apps to the folder, simply drag another app icon over the folder and release. Up to 16 apps or shortcuts can be placed into a single folder.
Tip: To change the name of the folder, simply tap the folder name once opened and edit as desired.
Remove an app, widget or folder from the Home screen
Home screen feeling cluttered? Removing stuff is easy! Simply press and hold on any app, widget or folder and then drag to the Remove section at the top of the screen.
