Removing Apps from Home Screen and Adding Apps to Home screen

Hi,

I ve not been able to add apps to Home screen or remove apps from home screen by dragging them to add to Home screen or remove at the top of the screen.

Has anyone been facing the same issue?

Thanks.

long press on any app or widget then drag it to the X, which Xperia do you have and android version?

Hi @Chary0304

 

Please, from your Home screen try the following:

1. Tap the Application screen icon.

2. Find and tap Settings -> Apps.

3. Swipe to the All tab.

4. Find and tap on Xperia Home (will reset home screen to default settings widgets/shortcuts).

5. Tap Force stop -> Clear data.

6. Restart the phone.

I´m at disposal for any question.

It just does not allow me to move to the top edge. The screen just moves..

That happen when you drag the app to a corner and the phone thinks that you are dragging it to another pane/page of the home launcher, does your phone has a protective film or glass?

Hi @Chary0304

 

Ok, please boot your device into safe mode as explained here. If this issue is not present in this mode, that indicates a third party app is causing the problem. In this case exit Safe Mode and then un-install any third party apps you don't need and clear the cache/data for the apps you want to keep.
