Hello. I have the 16 GB Nexus 7 which I purchased last week. So far, I like it, but customizing and organizing the Home screen is driving me nuts. To keep things very, very simple, I have two questions about organizing the Home screen.
First, I should let you know I've wiped everything--EVERYTHING--off the Home screen and left it totally empty. I got rid of all the widgets and icons. I want to work with a totally clean screen, and go from there. I've moved a few icons from the App Drawer to the Home screen. Now, for the two questions.
1. Is there a way to sort the icons in the home screen by name? Or, am I going to have to move them around manually to get them in alphabetical order? Can I do this without a downloaded app?
2. I was under the impression--perhaps wrongly--that long tapping the Home key will bring up a menu with a few options, including New Folder. That's not happening. When I long tap the Home key, all I see is a semi-circle, with a white ball at the top that has the Google logo. Is that what I'm supposed to see? I want to group my apps into folders, but honestly, I don't like the native way of doing it. I've dragged icons over icons, creating new folders, but is that the only way it can be done?
Okay, those are the two questions I want to start off with. Thanks for helping out. Jd
