    Prior to the GB update I thought I had swapped one of the bottom 4 icons for a Handcent icon.
    I then moved the stock Message button onto another page.

    Can we still customize those 4 buttons? We used to be able to hold them down and move them off the home screen.

    Tap the Applications icon on the launcher. When you're looking at all your apps just hit the menu button and select "Edit". You can change 3 of the apps.

    Your instructions seem to be the ones before I did the GB update. I used to go into settings>applications>manage applications and there was a little gear on top left that allowed me to edit 3 of those icon buttons (or clicking on the app). But since the GB update I don't see how to accomplish this anymore.

    I am not rooted.

    jmmurphy32 has already explained how to do it - but let's see if this helps you:

    1. Tap the Applications icon on the launcher.
    2. Hit the menu button and select "Edit" (or you can select the "gear" icon at the top left)
    3. Find the icon of the app you want to bring into the bottom bar
    4. Touch and hold the icon to select it, then drag it to the bottom bar
    5. Repeat as necessary

    The process you are going through isn't correct and wasn't correct prior to GB either.

    Thanks for both of your replies. I finally got it by following your instructions exactly.
    When I read the first reply the word launcher threw me. I thought the poster thought I was using one of those launcher program from the app store.
