Moving/Hiding/Changing Menu Options

Anyone figured out how to move menu items or hide them etc yet?

 

Want to make SMS messages one of the 6 main options before you go into the full menu of selections, and can't figure out how to switch some in and out... also want to put things like Visual VM as an icon thats not two or three clicks deep into the downloads folder...

 

I'm an avid blackberry user and have had one from years, but I'd been on the 8703e for YEARS so I am not sure if there's a desktop computer way to do this or what the new shortcut key would be for this... definitely not like my old phone :smileyhappy:

Re: Moving/Hiding/Changing Menu Options

On the full application screen, scroll to and highlight the icon you want moved.

 

Press Menu > Move. and then scroll the cursor up to where you want to place the icon in the first row (or two) of the screen.

 

Then, returning to the homescreen, you will notice that icon now in place.

Re: Moving/Hiding/Changing Menu Options

Ah thank you so much! That ABOUT solves it... any way to get icons out of downloads or applications and their own icon on the main screen? I could move Visual VM around within the downloads folder but not outside of it... in fact thats the one other BBerry thing I like major knowledge on is folder creation... either that or my 8703e didnt have much in that department... 

 

Best wishes and apprecation!

Re: Moving/Hiding/Changing Menu Options

When you press the Menu > Move , you might have also noticed the "Move to Folder" function adjacent to the "Move" command.

 

So, same thing: Highlight > Menu > Move to Folder, and choose to which you will place it.

Re: Moving/Hiding/Changing Menu Options

I can't help you there... that's the icon they use.

 

Sorry.
