    I've heard all this good stuff about Launcher Pro, so I thought I'd download it from the App market, and if I didn't like it, just uninstall it like I have done with other programs I no longer wanted.

    However,... It does not come up in the uninstall program that I downloaded *Uninstaller Pro", and I don't see any way to get rid of it. HELP!

    It took my Droid X from 7 homepages to only 3. And all my on screen icons have disappeared.

    I don't think I like this and want rid of it....

    What do I need to do??

    its a whole new home page - gotta reload it the way you want

    you can set the number of homescreens you have in preferences - click menu button

    but if you still wanna uninstall, go settings>applications>manage apps> and then scroll to it

    When you go into the market and to your downloads, is the app there? Click on it and there should be an uninstall at the bottom...if that doesn't work, from your homescreen - press menu - settings - applications - manage applications - locate launcherpro, open and click uninstall there...

    However, it sounds like you have to customize and change the settings - number of screens, add icons / widgets, etc...to get it to look like the home screen you were used to...

    Press menu then preferences and you can set up launcherpro how you'd like. To uninstall go to settings, applications, manage applications and find launcherpro then click on it. It will prompt you asking what to do

    Thanks Everyone. I see where I can Uninstall it now. I panicked for a moment, thinking a permanently changed something I didn't want to change.

    Maybe I will play with it a little with the preferences, and see if I like it. Now that I know I can delete it.... and am out of panic mode...and no longer thinking I "really" screwed something up. Cuz I'm still learning the phone, little by little...

    Thanks to everyone who replied,, and so quickly. I'll play for a bit and make a decision. You guys are the best!

    I have it, and I'm very happy with LauncherPro. I upgraded to the Plus and it's great.

    I removed all widgets before installing LauncherPro.

    The new version gives you a way to hide unused app drawer icons! Nice!

    Also btw, I don't see a need for apps like an uninstaller program because the android system has that built into it. Same with task killers, do it in Android!

    Stick with Launcher Pro, learn how to use it, read up on it... it's awesome.

    So far I have kept the Launcher Pro.

    What differences are there in the PLUS version?
    I'm still getting past the "learning curve".

    I cannot get the 5 icons per line to work for me, no matter what I do. I have gone into preferences and Advanced Settings, and clicked on 5 Icon rows on Homescreen. And still get 4.

    I also checked Stretch 4 row to 5 Row in order to fill the screen. But neither seems to work.

    Looks like I have some reading up to do. :)

    The Plus version offers widgets specifically for LauncherPro - currently, the dev has completed a contact and bookmark widget but there are several more to come out...if you go to the dev's website, it discusses his plans there..you cannot purchase Pro in the market, it is via PayPal...

    I cannot answer the other part of your question - but ima sure someone will come along and do so... =)

    Is that the only difference in the Plus version? The Widgets? Or is there something else?

    Nothing else, just the widgets...and you support the dev for his work. I don't use the widgets right now - I did mess around with the people widget but I do not like alot on my screens and whatever I do have there, I like to be transparent LOL but I like the launcher so I donated...besides, I have spent $3 on worse things...like fishnet stockings LOL just kidding...

    Related question... If I install launcher pro and decide to uninstall, will my original home screen still be set up the same way or will I have to reconfigure that from scratch too?

    Hey patmw123............

    Just want to say thanks for these directions. I think I like what I see from Launcher Pro but don't have the time to dive into it and needed my phone back from Launcher Pro.

    Thanks.......dancedroid

    I tried Launcher Pro but I then all my apps disappeared from my screens. On the home page I lost my big time and weather app and I couldn't get it back. I think LP would be good but it is just very complicated for a newbie. I looked at the manual and that didn't help me. Is there somewhere to go to learn how to set it up??

    Thanks.

    Also if you are unsure about launcher pro you can download the program "home switcher" and then you can go back and forth between your stock and LP.

    That is what it does it is a whole new launcher program you have to set stuff all back up but if you uninstall it your stuff will come back. Or like I just posted you can download home switcher and go between the two.

    Thanks for the Home Switcher tip. I'd really like to learn more about Launcher Pro and really set it up right. It looks very interesting. Still looking for some instructions on using LP.

    I just downloaded launcher pro PLUS but it says you have to first uninstall your current version of launcher pro.I tried to install it over my current version but they were right..it didn't work.Does this mean I will loose ALL my current customizations and have to start all over or are they saved in a user file and reintergrated into the new program?
    The only reason I'm thinking of upgrade to PLUS is to have the ability to resize widgets.I found that if you set launcher pro for more that 5 columns or 6 rows the home screen weather/clock widget from beautiful widgets is shrunken to fit.I stretched it back but then a window pops up and says resizing is only offered in the PRO version and it reverts to the smaller size.
