bb9900 - icons for native tasks and memopad apps cannot be moved to home screen

I want the icons for the native "tasks" and "memopad" apps in OS7 to appear on the home screen of my BB9900.  The icons currently appear on the "frequent" screen only and the apps work from there.  

 

I already tried holding down the menu button until a menu popped up, but the menu does not include the options to "move" or "move to folder".  In fact, the "move" options do not seem to appear for any items in the "frequent" screen.

 

Anyone know what to do?  FYI, I use the version of b-berry desktop software for Mac.

Re: bb9900 - icons for native tasks and memopad apps cannot be moved to home screen

Hello,

"Frequent" is a dynamic screen; your BB automatically puts things there that you use frequently. Hence, there is no manual way to move as you are describing (since its automatic and dynamic, based on your usage). Rather, what you need to find is the master icon for these apps...most likely they are inside of your "Applications" folder, normally visible on the "All" screen.

Good luck!

yeah you're absolutely right - the icons I needed were in the Apps folder - for some reason I didn't think to look there. 

thanks.
