    By default, the "home" screen is where it shows any currently opened apps.

    Is there a way to change it so that my first page of items is actually my "home" screen.

    (Similar to the Bold, where you could have a row of items along the bottom)

    Current "home"
    Can I change the default home screen?  (OS 10, BB Classic)-home.jpg

    I would like this page to be the new "home" screen by default

    **I have tried to change it the way you would on an Android device but that doesnt work, I have a feeling I wont be able to do what I want because of the Hub.

    You can't have just one row if that's what you're after.
    You can go to settings/display and turn off the show wallpaper when all apps are closed and see what that does for ya.....

    Unfortunately, no. The only option you have is whether that first home screen still displays if you have no open apps.

    It looks as if you want to have your first app screen as your home screen:

    Go into Settings, Display, and turn off the option of Show Wallpaper When All Apps Are Closed. This way, unless you have applications open in active frames, your first page of apps will be your initial screen.

    You can also download a app in BlackBerry world wich creates empty icons.
    If you turn of the homescreen when apps are closed, you can put your icons on the place you want them.

    This will make it look like a customized "homescreen"

    Thanks for the answers and the question from the OP. I just updated my Q5 to 10.3.1 a few days ago and the blank "home" screen was driving me crazy. I always close down apps when I'm not using them and it irritated me to have to do an extra swipe every time I opened up my phone just to get off the blank page. I think now I'm going to enjoy the update.
