    Unable to move a specific application from the home screen in android

    I am able to add an application on the home screen of my android handset as well as I am also able to delete the application from the home screen of my android device. But the problem is that I am not able to move the application in the home screen to any other folder or location. Why is it so? Is there any fix for this issue?

    Hi,
    You can move an application in home screen by long pressing on the application and then you can drag the application to any part of the screen to do this long press on any application there you will get a small vibration in the screen if the haptic feedback is turned ON and then drag the application around the screen and place it where ever you want it be.
    Also make sure that there is enough space available in the screen so that the application can moved most of the launchers have 4x4 grid that is a total of 16 applications per screen with out any widgets placed. If the problem is not fixed by the above methods then press the menu key in any one of the Home screen there you will get an option as "Preferences" select that so that the launcher can be restarted which will fix the problem.
    Hope this Helps.

    Well its quite easy to move an app from home screen to what ever side you want. All you need to do is just long press the app. When a light vibration comes in background you can drag your app where u want to.

    Hello Guest,
    I suggest instead of moving the application, you should Drag and Drop it to the required folder of your choice. If the problem is still there, then it might be a software problem with your device. For getting it fixed, you should go the concerned Manufacturer's Service centre. Your issue will be soved then. Thanks and visit again..! :-)
