    Removing an item from the Home screen of Xoom handset with Android OS

    There are certain unwanted items on the home screen of my Android supported Xoom handset. I would like to remove those items from the home screen in order to save space and to access other items at ease. How can I do that?

    You can visit the home screen of your android powered gadget. Tap and hold on the particular item you wish to remove. Hold it on until you feel a vibration. You are not recommended to lift your finger up. The Launcher icon will get changed to the Trash Can icon now. The item needs to be now moved on to the Trash Can icon. After some time the icon will get changed to red symbol. Now you can lift your finger.

    It is very easy to remove any icon from the Home Screen. As it takes some steps, I'm mentioning them below. So, go through them, to get the job done.
    1. Turn on your Android powered device and launch the Home Screen.
    2. After that, select the icon to remove from the Home Screen and do long press on it, until a Trash/Dustbin appears at the bottom of the screen.
    3. Then drag that particular icon into Trash/Dustbin, So that it will be removed from the Home Screen. Follow the same process for other icons also to get them removed.
