    I'm not able to figure out how to add additional home screen on 5.0.2. Some updates came in yesterday and it deleted all my shortcuts on home screen. Now I'm not able to add any additional screens and trying to add more widgets or shortcuts gives message - No more room on this home screen.
    Any suggestions how to add screen on 5.0.2? Thanks!

    The right steps will depend on your phone and launcher? Which device do you have? If you long press on your screen, is there an overview menu with a + sign to the right? You could also try press & hold on a shortcut and drag it to the right edge until a new screen opens

    Thanks for response Javier.
    I have Moto G 2nd Generation phone. I tried to add screen as you said but no + sign came up like it used to previously. And also tried to drag the icon to the edge - still no use.

    Hello, thanks for registering and welcome to the forums!

    The stock Moto G launcher comes with 5 different screens and you can't add more (or remove any of them). Dragging icons to a different screen should work as usual. How many screens can you access? Are you using a custom launcher?

    Maybe you could try this. Go to settings - apps - all tab - find Launcher - tap on it - clear cache and reboot your phone.

    Clearing cache in Launcher and rebooting the phone worked! I was able to drag icons to new screen. I had only one screen shown and was unable to add additional ones.
    But any updates wiping off customized settings is not great; since adding back icons is not very time consuming, i guess its ok. Thanks for your help! Appreciate it.
