    Default How can I change icons at bottom of home screen?

    I found this once, and now can't find it again. I have 1 thing I removed, but can't figure out how to replace it.

    You mean the dock on the bottom? Drag an app down there just like a if you were putting it on any other homescreen.

    I was trying to drag it from the Apps page, and it wouldn't stay there, I got it to work by first dragging to the upper part of the home page, then to the dock at the bottom.

    That's how you do it!

    You can also do the following for the lock screen:

    Settings . . . Security . . . Lock Screen Options . . . Shortcuts

    It takes you to a "Set sortcuts on lock screen" page where you can delete them or change their order.

    I have the same issue with the Galaxy Note 2 - the Home Screen dock (or bottom) icons appear uneditable. It is a pain when you want to edit those you use the most. Any ideas?

    To remove, they work the same as any of the apps on a screen. Just long press and drag to the recycle bin. To add them, unfortunately it appears you have to move the app to a space on one of the screens first, then drag down to the dock area.

    If you really want full control, try Nova Launcher! It runs so buttery smooth on the S3, that I never notice any lag at all, plus there are lot more options for configuring the dock icons and the general home screens as well.

    Did you work it out? Because all advice seems to refer to older/different versions, as no matter how long I long press the bottom app tray icons they seem uneditible. I've tried in 'edit' mode in Applications among many other approaches. I don't want to change launchers as I miss some of the S Pen stuff.. which I may get around to using.

    This was driving me nuts as so many people made suggestions that didn't work on my SG2. Bottom bar disappears when you press and hold.

    Press Applications icon
    Menu softkey - Edit

    You now have a special screen for:
    - editing Applications including the bottom bar
    - uninstalling apps
    - creating folders
    - adding screens
    - deleting blank screens

    Why is this made so unintuitive to find?

    guess the developers who made this don't use a SG themselves LOL

    Brilliant, thank you so much for figuring this out! None of the other solutions here worked on my samsung galaxy except this one you found.
