    How can I change from ADW Launcher to another ID without the lose of ADW. I Had everything set up decided to try switch to stock and lost everything. WOW that sucked. Several hours of set up gone. I now am set up and afraid to change. I now have the homescreen locked. Was that my issue? I thought I would be able to try other Launchers and switch to Sprint ID.

    You did the backup option in ADW Launcher correct? I may not be following you exactly but if you did the backup of your settings option and also your home screen that should of allowed you to restore once you switched back..

    I have been wondering the same thing. I am sorry, but I am very new to Android, can you please help me too?

    I have downloaded ADW Launcher and I can find the wallpapers, but I can't find the themes I purchased and downloaded. Also, I see the three icons on the drawer (i think that is what the row on the bottom is called), but I can't get the extra row and add more icons.

    How do you backup ADW?

    Thank you for your help

    p.s. my phone is not rooted. Does it need to be?

    On your home screen press Menu and you should see a More button. Press that and then ADW Settings. You'll find all the settings you are looking for including backup and restore, number of icon rows and columns, a theme chooser, etc. Keep in mind you don't need to apply a theme to use the icons from it. You can choose any icon you want to use by long pressing your current icon and press edit. Then choose the one you want to use from the themes you have downloaded.

    Yes, the three icons on the bottom of every homescreen is your dock. It's resizeable in ADW, too. Like this.
