how to get torch home screen to just show no apps when menu bar is closed?

[ Edited ]

Please bear with me, I'm struggling with how to explain this ha ha!

 

On the torch homescreen, you touch the 'all' bar at the bottom to display the full menu. When you touch the bar again it closes the menu of apps.


When I first got the torch the menu, when closed, displayed just one row of 4 apps (SMS, browser etc) But I must've pressed something unknowingly or changed a setting so it showed no apps at all when i closed the menu. I preferred this as I like the home screen to just show the background on the phone and not look cluttered.


However it changed back recently and is now showing TWO rows of apps now not even just one! and can't for the life of me figure out how to change it back??

 

Thanks to anyone who helps!

Just touch and drag down to the bottom of the screen. You'll then see just the arrow ^ (You can adjust that way for 0 to 3 rows of icons.) Then, when you tap the bar with the arrow, you'll get your full screen of icons back.

Thank you so much! I feel stupid now. I'm usually pretty good with handling new technology etc but looks like I was making my job harder by attempting to change it in settings rather than try and drag it ha ha!

@ahmad_tunde, you'd have to change the size of the icons which you can't do so the answer is "No".
