Automatically rearranging icons on startup screen

Hi,

Have been looking for a setting that automatically rearrange icons on the startscreen. If I for instance remove an icon the empty space will be filled by the next icon. Is there such a setting on this otherwise amazing smartphone?

Re: Automatically rearranging icons on startup screen

Hi @SkinnyCyclist, let me see if I can help out here.

 

If you remove an icon from the app drawer, the empty space will be filled by the next icon, but I am afraid that there is no such setting or function available for the home screen. There may exist launchers with this ability in Play Store, but do note that we cannot guarantee 100% compatibility with apps or launchers manufactured by a third party.

 

I hope that answered your question!
