Default Cutomize the Icons

Please Login to Remove!

I've noticed with the various wallpaper displays that various users have different icons displaying on their vertical and horizontal displays. I found out ( on this forum) how to change from 2 lines to 1 2 or 3, but how do I add Weatherbug or Google that are in my downloads folder?
Thanks

Highlight the application in your downloads folder that you want to move to your home screen (don't open the application, just have it "blue-lit"). Press your BB options key, select "move to folder", then select your "Home" folder. This will put it on your home screen and out of your downloads folder. Go to your home screen, highlight the icon, press your BB options key, select "Move" and move it up to the top line of folders, Press the icon again, and it should be on your top line. Now in portrait mode it should show up on your main screen.

Just another home screen tip: You can also create folders on your home screen to clean it up a bit. From your home screen, press your BB options key, select "New Folder" and then a screen will pop up where you can name and color code a new folder. Then you can move icons into that folder. This is a nice way to clean up your home screen. I created one for Mail, where I placed all my email accounts into it. I do not need to see them on my home screen since I have all my email accounts going into my messages folder. I also created one for system tools, system applications I do not use very often bust still want easy access to.

Thank you so much. I moved my folders around, hid the ones I do not have activated. Very nice.
