    Hi

    Android is a very use friendly operating system. So its really very simple that you can easily move icons and widgets in the home screen of your device.. Please proceed as like this :-

    1. Go to the menu and from there click on the icon that you want to move to the Home Screen..When you press on that icon, it would lift up a bit so that it can get movable. You can then slide your finger on the home screen wherever you want to place that particular icon..

    2. Also you can click the + sign and from there you would be given a list of installed applications and icons so that you can select them and drag them to wherever you want to place them on your home screen..

    In the home screen also you can press on icons and move them anywhere you want to customize it more efficiently so that you take the least time to open the most used applications..

    All the best
