    I like to leave a 5th screen open for drag and drop rearranging of my home screens and testing out new widgets that I may or may not have room for on other screens until i cdecide to use them full time or not

    I loaded cyanogen last night, which looks like it uses HelixLauncher. It defaulted to 7 screens. I turned 2 of them off and still can't figure out what I need on the 5th one. I know what you mean.

    I use the 5th screen for direct dials. It's awesome! Much easier than searching through contacts.

    Main Screen - Clock, News and Weather Widget, Everyday program (browser, gmail, livescorees, phone, contacts, etc.)

    Right Screen 1 - Most commonly used apps
    Right Screen 2 - Mixzing widget (full screen)
    Right Screen 3 - Pandora and Slack widget, all other radio/music apps

    Left Screen 1 - Google Search, Internet Bookmarks
    Left Screen 2 - Games and Power Control Widget
    Left Screen 3 - Useful programs that I use occasionally (calculator, Droidlight, Directv DVR, etc.)

    Mine is, from left to right:
    Reading Widgets (FML, MLIA, TFLN)
    Music (Guitar Tuner, bTunes)
    Beautiful widgets, home and nothing else (I like simple :))
    Games and Apps
    Mission Control (SetCPU, ROOT Explorer, AudioManager, Power Bar, Advanced Task Manager)

    Make it a hobby screen, I like music, so I devoted a whole screen to it. If you like sports, news, etc. :)
