    I got my DROID about 2 weeks ago and I love it so far. There is so much to learn about it that I decided to join this forum. I've kinda just been doing trial and error on figuring it all out but I'm having some trouble with the home screen. It cleared all of my shortcuts on my home screen the other day, and so I just re-added them. However, this morning I looked at my phone and all of my previous short-cuts reappeared and are being overlapped by the ones I had put on the other day. Is there anyway I can clear the home screen again and just start over? or is there a way I can remove the shortcut from the home screen? any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    To remove anything from the home or any other screen long press on it. Then drag to the middle bottom where the trash can is.

    Welcome to the neighborhood, enichols14! Erron is right. Long press and drag is the way to clean up that screen. Let someone know if you need more help. Hope you enjoy your time here!

    Welcome! I'm curious did you add a new app before the home screen cleared itself?
