    Hi I did an update to my Galaxy TAB 2 10.1 to OS 4.2.2
    Now I can't remove the apps from the base of the screen. They seem to be fixed. All other apps I can remove and add as before. The apps that I cannot remove from the base of the screen are Contacts, S.Planner, Internet, YouTube, Maps, Settings and Apps. I only use the last two apps so having the rest there is really annoying.

    Can anyone suggest a way to remove them?

    Welcome to Android Central! Try wiping the system cache partition. Sometimes, after a big system update, odd bits of leftover system data can muck things up a bit. You won't lose any personal data or settings.

    From what I remember of my brief fling with 4.2.2, you can drag useful apps to "fixed" bottom row. I thought that was one of the good things of the update. I kept ESfile explorer, Settings, dropbox and Splanner there. Apps launcher is fixed to the right bottom.

    Yes, but I believe the OP's problem is that the apps in that Favorites Tray can't be removed.

    Not sure if we're talking about the same issue. The Favorites Tray, which is that lower row, is intended to remain the same as you swipe from homescreen to homescreen, which makes it easier to access the frequently used apps that you place in that tray. You should still be able to remove any of those app shortcuts in the Favorites Tray and replace them with any other shortcut of your choice. The OP is saying that he (or she, sorry, can't tell from the username) can no longer remove any of the shortcuts from the Favorites Tray.

    So, IS there a way to change the apps in this "favourites folder"? Or are we stuck with what Samsung decides we should have.
