    I'm trying to delete icons for programs I don't use. When I drag them to the trash can, they just reappear.

    How do I get rid of these things?

    They don't show up under manage apps.

    Thanks



    I did try and search the site for info on this topic, but there may be another more geekie term used for this that I'm unaware of.

    You can't delete apps from the app drawer in the stock app. If you want to do that, you need a custom launcher like LauncherPro or ADW.



    To see all the apps on your phone under manage apps, once you are in manage apps, hit menu>filter>all Just so you know, you won't be able to delete those annoying apps unless you are rooted.

    Thanks for the reply, but that sounds kind of complicated.

    I guess I'll just live with the icons I don't use.

    The custom launchers are NOT complicated. It is just an app you download. The rooting thing, I've never done it, so I can't attest to how complicated it is.

    I thought the op was asking about removing icons from the Home Screen and not the app drawer.



    I would suggest a reboot and then try to drag the icon to the trash can again. If that doesn't work, try switching between the Themes.
