Deleting Folders From Main Screen

I have a combined SMS & Text msg folder that is on my main screen, and a browser shortcut that I would like to delete.
I have found where to turn off the combined SMS email settings and have done so, and deleted the contents in the combined folder. Now how do I remove it and other unwanted folders from my main screen please???

Thank you in advance for your time and help.

Re: Deleting Folders From Main Screen



As far as I can work out you cant delete the icons from the home screen all you can do is change them to icons you want to use more frequently without going into the BB menu.


When you press the BB button and go into the menu the top line of icons is the line you see on the 'home screeen' to change these highlight the icon you want to move and press the BB button, select 'move' and then scroll the icon up or down depending where you want it.


Hope this answers your question, you just cant have no icons on your homescreen (to my knowledge)
