Question How to put an icon onto home screen...??

Please Login to Remove!

Kinda embarrassed to be asking...and not likely a curve-specific issue, but here goes:

I have an application (Bloomberg) for which the launch icon resides in the Application folder.

Is there any way to get that icon onto my home screen directly? I know "menu" then "switch application" brings up a row of apps, but since i use BB very often, i was hope to add it to the home screen.

Highlight the icon, Hit the menu button (the BB key) and select more. Move it over to the "Up" icon, the bottom of the screen should say "move up", and click the track ball. It should now be on the home screen.

Are you sure you're in the applications folder?

I am in this screen (the applications screen) and I want to move an icon from here to my home screen but I only seem to be able to move them around the screen. Am I in the correct place to do this??

What O2 theme are you using? If it's O2 today you're stuck with what is on the home screen. If it's zen, just move the icon you want to be one of the first 5
