Last daft question chaps :-)
« on: November 25, 2012, 11:20:26 AM »
Well I feel I bit of a 'user'. Had 4 questions - all answered quickly and expertly . Excellent forum.

Last question
When I turn on my machine comes up with a jumbled screen of everything I have downloaded with photos . Looks a mess and I have to click the circle button with 6 squares in it to get to my apps page to access my range of books and music. Please can you tell me how I can 'order' my open page referred to as 'My Library' and change it so I get the apps page as my opening screen .

Many thanks yet again

Paul

There are 5 homescreens that you can swipe to the right or left.
You can press and hold a widget and delete it by moving it to the x that will appear upper left, or move the widget to another homescreen by holding it to the right or left while the screens scroll underneath.
Once you have the screen cleared, go to the apps you want, long press will bring them to the homescreen. Dropping one app on another will make a folder. Swiping through the apps directory will get to widgets that can be installed the same way.(in case you deleted and want them back)

If you have somehow changed the wallpaper to display all your photos, long pressing a non-app/widget  area will allow you to change the background wallpaper to something less confusing.

My library and my movies are widgets.

Impressive Matt. If I could thumbs up on TT I would. Actually, I will do a rare sign in on the browser for the occasion.

Thx. Not sure if the default homescreen after a reboot is the center one or the last one opened. I put the my movies and library to the far right screen. Wondering which widgets are witching the battery wattage, maybe I'll delete them.
