Device: Nexus 7 2013
How do I delete a desktop home screen on Nexus 7 2013? I tried everything: pinch zooming, double tap, etc. Nothing seems to work.

When I had the original Nexus 7 (now dead), there was no way to delete a page from the homescreen. So, I'm not surprised the Nexus 7 v2 still doesn't have this feature.
On the original Nexus 7, I flashed the CyanogenMod ROM, which uses the Trebuchet launcher. This launcher had the feature to delete a page from the homescreen.
If flashing a new ROM is overkill, you can install a new launcher, as t0mm13b suggested. I personally use Nova Launcher on my Samsung Galaxy S4, which lets me delete a home screen by launching
Nova Settings from the home screen (via left soft key), and going to
Desktop > Home Screens.
