    I recently got the Droid and i like it, but i cant figure out how to move icons that i use a lot like "phone", which some how got stuck on the left side of the screen, so i have to switch to that side every time i want to use it. there are programs that i never use on the main center screen, and also this playlist box that has a play and fast forward button some how got stuck on the top of the main screen, which moved the google search bar down so it sits in the middle of the screen. so how do i move the icons, and how do i get rid of the playlist box?

    You hold your finger on it and drag it to the trash can at the bottom of the screen......

    long press those icons....hold your finger over them until you can move them. Drag them to the bottom drawer to delete them (it turns red) or drag them to the edge of the screen and you can get them over to the next desktop too.

    To move an icon from the left screen to the center, hold your finger on it for a little while so that the trashcan shows up at the bottom of the screen, then drag it to the right side and hold it there for a second. The home screens will shift and you will be able to put that icon on the screen you want it on.

    To delete, do as stated above
