    Dear friend

    Your first question's answer is :

    1. Touch and hold the ICON you want to delete from home screen. Now , a remove bar will be visible to you at the bottom of the screen ----> Drag the icon to that bar and it will be removed automatically.

    Your second question's answer is :

    2. Removing the ICON or Deleting the ICON are one and the same thing. So, don't get confused.

    Hopefully it will help you!!!

    Removal of any icon from the Home Screen is quite easy task to perform. Here are the steps to get the job done.
    1. First of all, go to main Menu and select the particular icon that you intend to remove.
    2. Now, perform a long press on that particular icon until a trash or dustbin icon appeared at the bottom of the screen.
    3. Now, drag that particular icon into that dustbin so that, it will be removed from the Menu tab. Remember, here the icon will be removed but not the application. I hope you understand. Thank you

    you can drag the icon to a symbol which looks like recycle bin.
    After that leave the icon and its get deleted.
