You can not move icons from sub-menus to the home screen. You can only move icons around on the screen they already exist on. As a work around, you can install or enable a different theme that does not have any sub-menus. That way everything is on the same screen.

Press "ALT" then click the trackwheel. Choose "Move Application" from the dropdown. Then use trackwheel to move App. to where you want it and click Trackwheel again.

Good luck, hope that helps.

PS- just learned this in another thread- thanks "mortgageguy"---
You can hide the icons on the homescreen you do not want to see by pressing ALT key and the trackwheel. Select the icon you want and then select hide. To undo select show all.
