    HELLO -----Hope this post is in the correct place as I am learning this Tapatalk.

    I am trying to get only 1 of any app or other function on each screen, but I cannot delete anything to the trash can except on the first (home) screen. I want to do this with apps as well as with browser, phone, and other functions. In other words, I don't want any duplications from screen to screen. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance . I must be missing one step. I really appreciate the forums and all the help.

    So the real problem is you are unable to delete items for other screens?

    This part confuses me. Deleting works on some screens but not others?

    I don't get it...so when you long press an item on a screen other than the middle one, the trashcan doesn't show up at the bottom??

    Sorry guys------I guess I'm not making this clear.. I can remove items on the main screen where the wallpaper is, (where the trash can is at the bottom ) no problem. ----- but not able to remove any from other screens. They keep popping back on the screen when trying to bring it to main screen for the trash can. Does that make any more sense? THANKS.

    No I think your trying to delete from the app drawer, thats just like your program files, you cant delete them unless you uninstall the app/

    It still sounds like you are talking about the screens and not the app drawer. No matter what screen you are on if you long press the icon a garbage can should pop up on the bottom so you wouldn't have to go back to your home screen to delete. Your wallpaper doesn't stretch across all of your screens?

    If your trying to remove an app from one of the screens on the right or left of the main, do what warrior said, just long press it and a trashcan will appear at the bottom of that page also, you dont need to drag it to the main home page to trash it.
