Number of Icons in Home Screen.

Ok, This one is driving me crazy. Right now, I have 3 rows of 4 icons on my homescreen.  I am trying to find out how to reduce the number of rows. I have seen previous comments from other forums that to change the number of icons rows on your home screen you just need to hit your BB button  (it will open up all your icons) hit BB button again and hit "options". This will lead you to the menu to change the number of rows showing on your homescreen. However, When I hit "options" it takes me right back to the screen with all my icons. There is a icon highlighted on the icon screen. It seems like that is screwing me up? Any ideas? Sorry for the novel.

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

You can hide Icons if you pres the menu button and go to hide, and make sure that show all is not checked, thats how I organize my desktop on my bb

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

There is a way to limit the number without hiding them. I have seen the menu screen before.

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

Sorry. I am still having the same problem. When i hit options it just returns me to the icon screen. It doesn't open up the menu. I got it to work once as I was "helping" someone find this menu. It worked when there wasn't an ICON highlighted.

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

I don't think I can give Kudos to myself but it was a glitch that required me to pull the battery and reset. My Dad was having the exact same problem so either its a genetic thing or there is a little glitch in the system. :smileyvery-happy:

[ Edited ]

I'm having a similar problem arranging icons on the home screen.

 

Some time ago I was able to bring up the homescreen menu and change from the default icon row layout (from 2 rows to  three ) but now I cannot go back.

 

I can no longer bring up the proper homescreen menu by using the  BB key, options, etc..

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

You can also CREATE your own folder like "UNUSED" and use the MOVE or MOVE TO FOLDER option and move unused icons to that folder.  You can also RE-ARRANGE the locations by using the MOVE option that is in the MENU list.

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

It appears that this is a glitch. You can only go to this menu once without having to pull the battery.  I am new to the forum and BB.  Is there a way to submit this to BB to get resolved in the next software update?
