    Default How to delete blank home screens?

    I am having trouble deleting an empty home screen. I go to edit homescreen and attempt to drag screen to the trash can, but it doesn't delete. The trash can turns red but home screen remains. Any other suggestions?

    Might need a reboot and try again? Not sure but I know you can't delete your last remaining homescreen, which I doubt you are trying. Perhaps make sure it's not set as your default screen (I think denoted by a star)? Just some ideas.

    One of my favorite things to say: "nothing is broken until you reboot it and it still doesn't work"!

    Glad it's fixed for you.

    Question Re: How to delete blank home screens?

    I have this same problem in a sense. I use to be able to hold down on the blank screen and drag it to the trash bin at the bottom. However, now? I can't even get the blank screen to drag. I did a reboot (restart) and it didn't help. Any other suggestions?

    For Galaxy Note 10, just pinch any home screen and you'll be brought to a screen with all your homescreens as thumbnails. Tap and hold a scdeen and drag and drop to the trashcan at the top of the screen.

    On the gs3 you hit the menu key and edit page. Grab the blank page and drag to trash. Im hoping you have a gs3 since you posted in a s3 thread

    Thank YOU! Squeezing the home screens WORKS GREAT for the Samsung Galaxy Note I and Note II. Next month, when I forget how this was accomplished, I'll have to find this site again, but for now you've been a blessing.

    It is very easy. You just sqeeze (pinch) the sceen on home screen. Then you just drag the unwanted screen to the trash can either on top or bottom of the screen. This way you can drag all the unwanted screens. Hope this resolves your problem.
