Hello its my first post since I register this forum...
I have a question regarding pre-installed apps such as Gmail and Camera, Camcorder and so.
Is there any way to remove it from the drawer? Because of the Drawer is always alphabetical order and I wish I dont want to see Camera and Camcorder icons front for I am not use it at all.

Is there any way or apps does that kind of things- without rooting the device?


I am using T-Mobile (USA) Mytouch 3g with 1.6 donut.



thank you guys!

Not at all possible without root. Check my sig for very clear root instructions. Easy as pie and well worth the time invested. Good luck.

I used Root Explorer (in the market) and navigated to /system/app. From there you can rename the .apk that you want to hide to .apk.old or something. Then the app will not show up in the drawer.
