Re: hide icons-can you hid them like previous bb's?

Currently, no. That feature has been requested.

 

What I've done to hide icons I don't want to see is to create a folder on the homescreen (touch and hold an icon about two seconds until it pulsates > drag one icon you want to hide on top of another icon you want hidden > you will see a pop up CREATE FOLDER message > name that folder and confirm. For instance, I named mine "Junk".

 

Then, move that icon to your last icon panel to the right so you just don't see it as often.

Re: hide icons-can you hid them like previous bb's?

I've accidentally hidden an app (or at least its icon) and I want to rediscover it. I downloaded a maps app. I wanted to move it to another screen. I touched and held the icon until it pulsated. I then tried to move it to another screen but it kept asking me to create a folder. I didn't want to do this; I just wanted to move the icon. So I pressed cancel. The next thing I knew the icon had disappeared altogether. I thought I must have accidentally deleted it but, no, there it is BlackBerry World / My apps: I click on it and up it comes. But how do I reinstate the icon itself please?

Are you sure you didn't create a folder?

Look in all folders, and look on the screen on which it was about to create the folder when you pressed cancel.

Also, check the LAST icon screen on your device.

Re: hide icons-can you hid them like previous bb's?

Thanks for getting back so quickly. I was obviously being very stupid but I couldn't find the icon in any folder (maybe I was looking in the wrong place) or on the last icon screen of the device. So in desperation I did a battery pull and when I turned the Q10 back on, there was the icon on the last icon screen. Phew! But thank you again for your advice.
