Home screen trays on Torch

Can anyone tell me how I can set one of the home screen trays to be my default? For example it always goes to ALL when I would prefer to only use FAVORITES.

All is default, what I do is hit red key to get to home aka ALL then scroll over to right to get to favorites.

Re: Home screen trays on Torch

great question.  did you ever figure this out?  seems so wrong to have a favorites, but not be able to access it before seeing your "non-favorites" on the all screen.

Re: Home screen trays on Torch

Still a great question. Despite it now being 2 years later this obvious flaw remains. Knottyrope's workaround works but is clumsy. Why have a workaround when (if RIM bothered to care) the issue could be fixed?

Re: Home screen trays on Torch

It depends on which model of Torch you're using.  If you're using a Torch running OS 6, use knottyrope's suggestion.  If you're using a Torch running OS 7 (9810, 9850 or 9860), highlight the bar that says "All, Favorites, etc." and press your menu key.  Choose Manage Panels and you can then choose which panel(s) you wish to display.

 

 

I hope that helps you.  :smileyhappy:

Re: Home screen trays on Torch

Thanks for that. Yes it does help. Now I know why I could not find the solution. Because there isn't one for my phone (a 9800). Either I must downgrade back to OS 5 or buy a new phone so I can get OS 7.
