    How to get rid of unwanted icons on home page

    I have a number of icons on my homepage that I can't get rid of. Basically they're icons for games that I never downloaded or installed so it's not a question of simply uninstalling the app: they don't show up in apps. How they got there in the first place is another mystery. At any rate, how do I get rid of them? I've updated to ICS if that makes any difference. Thanks.

    If you just want to get rid of the Icons, you should be able to hold your finger down on the icon, and drag it up to the X Remove option.

    If you want the games gone for good you'll have to find a way to remove the app they belong to, If they are the games that came with the THRiVE then they are stuck in your system folder and unable to be uninstalled unless you are rooted.

    Thanks. I'm an idiot. I had no idea there was an X remove that was even there. They're gone now.

    ppppsssshhhhh... thats nothing, I didn't even learn till last night that you could combine icons on the home screen to make app folders. It was probably written down somewhere and I overlooked it.
