    I want to get ride of the bloatware in the applications menu, i know I cant delete them without rooting but is there a way to just condense them into a folder so I don't have to look at it all and have it taking up the first 3 pages of my applications menu?

    Hi! Yes you can make a folder and put them all in there. Another thing you can do too is move them to the last 3 screens of your applications menu so you don't have to even go there.

    If you press your menu button while in your apps screen I think you can create a folder there. (I am using Go Launcher so I have a little more abilities than the stock theme). If that doesn't work just put them grouped together and avoid those last pages.

    If you download launcher pro, you can go into settings and hide the apps you don't want to see

    Newbie here, can't seem to figure out how to create a folder for the apps I do not want. Can you elaborate? Not sure I want to add an app, I only have one space left on my 4 pages.
    Thanks all.

    you can get "go launcher" from the market, its an app that replaces the stock launcher, and is much better/quicker.
    it doesnt have an icon like normal apps, and it will let you hide whatever apps you dont want to see in the app drawer.
    its very nice and customizable.
