    Is there any way of turning off the Google bar on the top of the home screen?

    And if you do, can you undo it and make it come back if you later feel you liked it there?

    Yes but only by downloading a launcher from the playhouse. Then it "goes away"

    I didn't turn it off, but I did replace it with the Google "g".

    I don't understand... why the heck doesn't Motorola allow you to disable the lock screen, and Google allow you to disable the home screen bar - without having to download some 3rd party app to do it...?

    OK, go into settings, apps, then all, scroll down to "Google search" and disable it. This is on the turbo. If you don't want to disable it, just do a long press on it and remove it from your home screen. That is actually what I did, then I went into my other screens and moved the "g" search icon to the main screen. It replaces the bar, but gives you the "g" if you want to search.

    You should be able to long press it and drag it to your trash bin. That will remove it from your homescreen and you can always go back into your widgets and add it later if need be.

    I guess. I wanted the Google search on my home screen. I just didn't want the Google search bar on it.

    Long pressing it doesn't do anything to it.... and when you release your finger it launches the app...

    Yes, that is exactly what I want... the Google Search and Voice Search - but don't want that bar across my home screen...

    When you long press it, doesn't three choices pop up, one of which is "remove". Drag it to that, or, when you release it, those three options stay open for you to choose?

    After having said all this, I'm not sure where the search "bar" went to, if you wish to reinstall it.
