    Re: Removing the application shortcuts from the home screen my android phone from LG?

    It is possible to remove the application shortcuts on the home screen from your LG android phone. Removing the app shortcut would not remove the app from the phone. The apps downloaded and installed will be available on the phone at all times. The apps will also be virtually stored in the market. To remove the apps shortcut from the home screen, you need to first press and hold on the icon in the home screen. Then you need to drag the icon into the trash folder which will appear on the bottom of the screen. The shortcut can be replaced on the home screen at any time that the user wants.

    In order to remove the application from the Home screen all you have to do is long press on the application until you are able to drag the application as you like when that happens there will a cross mark,trash can either on the top or bottom of the screen. By dragging the application to the icon will create a red background which means you can remove the application form the home screen. By doing this it wont remove the application from your phone instead it only does remove it from your Hoe screen.

    Hope this Helps.

    Long press on the icon that you wand to remove.... A Trash icon will be displayed at the bottom or top of the screen, drag the icon into the trash icon and it will be deleted.

    However, deleting the shortcut will not uninstall the app... To uninstall the app go to Settings--> Applications--> Manage Applications--> All Tab--- Select the APP--- You'll get an option to uninstall the app... Hit that and that app is out of your mobile....
