Is there a way to change the 6 launch programs that are on the home screen.

I would like to be able to have what ever program I want to be launched from the home screen rather than the 6 that are currently there.

On the main screen, press the Menu button so you see all application icons. Move the icons around so the ones you want are in the first six (the order that you want). Presto, those six in the top row are the ones in you start page.

To move an icon, select the icon and press Menu then Move. Press the trackball to place in the spot you want it.

L is one of the Theme options that is available on 4.5 and later. I am assuming you have it on the bold. It adds a line of icons across the bottom of the homescreen. Go to Options>Themes and look for Demension L Theme.

Go to the Media area of this forum:
Media Center - BlackBerryForums.com : Your Number One BlackBerry Community

Find a 9000 theme that you like and load it.

No L theme on the Bold?? That's a bummer. I am sure there is an L theme out there for the Bold that you would like. Just check the media area as stated and I'm sure you will find something.

Here's one...

Sorry to redirect conversation, but this seems like a knowledgeable group, and I had no response to this question elsewhere.

Can I have the clock function as the home screen - similar to when it is charging?
