    hold your finger on an icon you would like to delete or move.

    when pulsing you can delete or move your icons.

    some icons cannot be deleted.

    drag an icon over another icon to make folders.

    upto 16 apps/games can be in one folder

    drag icon all the way right or left to move to new window pane

    you can have less than 16 apps per pane as well just move them to another or make folders

    thanks for watching

    Accidentally did this on my fiancee's phone after I updated her OS to 10.2 (actually, I knew exactly what I was doing, just didn't realize she'd still want it...)

    As far as I can tell, as the other poster said, it's a shortcut so it's not likely that you could replace it once removed. Perhaps in the future BlackBerry will implement the ability to create homescreen shortcuts of any device feature (you can sort of do this already with the "Search" menu).

    Isn't there an app that can create shortcuts? Someone more knowledgeable would be able to tell you if this would solve your issue.

    Why not just try side loading the bar files it might bring back the icon.

    Any ideas of how to get my home screen shortcuts to work? The phone, search and camera shortcuts are showing on the screen but nothing happens when I try to use them.

    Do you have parental controls enabled? I remember that caused them to stop working for some people

    I wish there were a setting that would allow all apps to be automatically alphabetized rather than having to drag-and-drop individually. iOS 7 has this feature, called "Reset Home Screen". I find it very useful, especially as I install more and more apps as time goes on. Just my $.02 worth.

    Anyone know of an app that can edit your shortcut icons? I see plenty of apps that allow you to create a custom shortcut, but I can't seem to find a way to edit the shortcut icon after its been created. I created a web shortcut to a news site, but the icon it created looks like a miniature version of the site instead of a nice, neat icon. I want to change the graphic in the shortcut.

    I can't believe I never noticed this before but I have 5 pages of icons and for the first time today instead of swiping from page 1 to page 4, I tapped the 4th squircle -ish dot and it jumped straight to page 4. I think I never realized this before because I was on the Z10 but now on the easier to see Z30 they are larger. The first one also happens to be an envelope icon which brings you straight back to the HUB. As a matter of fact you can "long press" the row of dots and slide your finger from left to right to pick the page as they will appear even larger. I was hesitant to use more than 5 pages due to all the swiping but now it will be much faster to move from page to page and keep a nice and tidy first page so that I can see my wallpaper photo
