    I've searched but have not been able to find help on this. I'm looking to delete some icons in the side up applications menu (not from one of the three home screens). Is it possible to do this without uninstalling the app? I just want to free up some clutter in the apps menu.

    As always,

    TIA

    Only way to get rid of the icon will be to uninstall the app.

    You don't want to physically remove the app but just don't want it in the Scrolling App Screen?

    I'm not sure this can be done. But my advice would be to make some folders(Games, Media, Internet..etc) on your 3 home screens to where you don't have to look through all that "clutter" on the Scrolling App Screen.

    Maybe there is a way but I'm unaware of it.

    yup, you have to uninstall. i created a folder on one of my home pages with frequently used apps, maybe 10 or 12, and so now i have that same quick access without all the stuff i rarely use. i hardly ever go into the full app screen now. maybe that would work for you?

    Thanks, guy for the quick replies!
    I have a couple of folders for different types of apps, but I was hoping to clean up the slide up window. Oh well, I'll just have to be less anal. :)
