    The long search strip? Just press and hold on whatever screen it was on, select widgets, select search.

    That was one of the first things I deleted from my home screen. Takes up too much space for something I rarely use.

    Agreed. Besides, that's what the soft key is for.

    I like the task bar. Makes it simple to turn off wifi and blue tooth.

    Yes, I know it's not that difficult to do anyway.

    I was thinking he meant the search bar. I dont think the task bar comes set on the screen when you first get it.

    Either way....like you I love having them on there. I use beautiful widgets to put gps, bluetooth, wifi and silent buttons on my screen.

    Welcome to our community Bobbi. It will take some time to learn this beast but it is fun doing it. Dont sweat what may seem catastrophic since most things are easily fixed and or put back. Just remember to select the menu bar in different apps/screen and look around there. Also, long press on apps, pictures, other small items and the desktop to see what options you have. Besides that, just take some time to check out the market, read these forums, use the search feature and by all means ask questions. There is a wealth of knowledge here and everyone is more than willing to lend a helping hand.

    Enjoy the ride.

    I did the same thing and only recently realized what a mistake that was. I use the voice search for calling someone, finding a map to someplace and navigating there, answering a question by searching the net. Did you know you can press the voice search button and say, "What is 11.7 times 22.6" and get the answer back? Or say, "Convert 20 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit" and get the answer of 68 degrees?

    If I could only have one thing on the home screen, the Google search widget would be it.
