How to modify Home screen ?

Hola,

Yesterday my Droid X was updated to 4.5.605

This has changed my Home screen i.e. it added a few icons at the bottom of the screen like 'Text messages' and replaced my 'dialer one' for 'dialre'.

I'd like to modify the sceen i.e. replace 'dialer' button to 'dialer one' and remove 'Text messages' button from the Home screen.

How could I remove those icons at the bottom of the screen? ( I'm talking not about apps that I could move to the bin but about icons that exists on all screens)

Thanks in advance.

Tap and hold the apps (these are apps) and a menu will come up. Tap on "Change Shortcut" and replace the ones you want to replace.

Well ... thanks for reply ... it was good ( althought not perferct solution :smileyhappy: )

I was able to replace Dock shortcut for the one I wanted but it still does not allow to remove unwanted icons. It looks that it force us to have exactly 4 Dock shortcuts at the bottom. Well I could live with that while having control (able to remove) on it would be better.

Thanks a lot.

Look in the market for Home Replacement apps. They allow you to completely customize the homescreen(s) and apps and what it looks like. Most have free versions as well.
