Just how the heck do I remove unwanted app icons from my home and other screens? On my Galaxy S4 I just slid them off the side, but on the damned Galaxy Pocket, they just bounce off the side back onto the screen, or slide across to the next screen.

Do I have to use Applications Manager and actually uninstall them, or is there some better way?

  • When you start to slide them does a trash can or X appear on the top? Sep 30 '14 at 16:33
  • Oops, never saw the trash can.

When you long press the icon you will see a trash can. To remove them from the screen, drop them on it.
