    Moving icons

    On the main screen, righ out of the box, there's icons like Multimedia, Social, egames, Reading...
    When I download items, their icons join the cluttered main page
    I wish to move the new utilities, apps and games icons into their respective cubby holes, so that the
    main screen retains its original appearance, and so that my games are all in the games section

    How is this achieved?

    Press and hold the icon you want to move. Drag it to garbage pail which will appear. Drop it there. It with be on your drawer. Or drag to screen you want.

    I did not see a garbage pail, and when I try to drop it into a different section, it does not go...

    I'm baffled.

    How about a trash can (top right) that says REMOVE next to it?

    You need to long press on an icon for about 1-2 seconds and it becomes movable too.

    If you want to keep icons from cluttering up your home screens, open the Market. Tap the menu button (4 lines on it) and go to Settings. There is an option to automatically add shortcuts to the home screens. Untick this box.

    ok, I finally see the trashcan.
    The sticker was covering it
    (Decorative thing boasting what the tablet has---wife didnt want it removed)
    I see a Market Icon, but not the four lines



    I did find Apps, went to settings, checked evrywhere, did not see anything about
    an option to automatically add shortcuts to the home screens.

    Open the market app. Once you have the market open, tap the menu button. I think it will be in the top right hand corner. Depending on how your version of android is skinned it may be slightly different.

    Well I was feelin my way around in the dark, bumped into a few walls, stumbled over the cat, knocked over a lamp, which crashed
    onto the sleeping dog's head, who bit me and chased me out the front door. The lock mechanism automatically engaged, so when the alarm woke the wife, she looked out the window and asked why I was sleeping on the front sidewalk naked.
