This answer will be different based on what type of phone you own:

For Android, try holding down the icon you wish to remove and start to drag it to one side. You should see the word "Remove" appear at the top of the screen. Drag the icon you wish to remove on top of the word "Remove" and let go. The icon then should be gone!

For iPhone, hold down the icon you wish to delete until your apps start to jiggle (this is edit mode).Tap the Delete button (looks like an X) at the top left of the app icon. Tap Delete to confirm the removal. Click the Home button to exit edit mode.

If these steps do not work, I recommend opening a search engine (such as Google) and entering the following text in the search bar: {your model of phone} followed by "delete icons from home screen". Hope this helps!

How to remove an icon from home screen


On most Android tablets, you simply press and hold the icon until the screen changes modes (to arrange). Then you should see an option to delete/remove at the top of the screen. Just drag the icon to the top of the screen and it should leave the home screen.

How to delete an icon


Long press the icon. While doing that, you will see a REMOVE appear at the top of your home screen. While still holding the icon down, drag it to the Remove and let go. This should delete the icon.

I cannot get my IPad to delete some icons on my iPad screen I no longer need


When removing those icons you are actually deleting the apps from your ipad. There are some apps built into you ipad and those cannot be deleted.
However you can move them out of sight to another screen.
Or create a folder icon and move them there if you do not use them often.

I cant work out how to move shortcut icons i.e Facebook app to a different home screen and how to delete shortcut items from a home screen?


On android, move a Icon/shortcut: press and hold the finger on the icon and drag it to where you want either on the same screen in a different spot or to another adjacent screen then lift finger.
To delete an icon/shorcut, do the same as for moving the icon but this time drag it to the 'Trash bin' symbol at bottom line/middle position of the screen: the icon should turn Red and lifting yiour finger will delete it.
It takes a bit of practice but it is quite easy and safe as you can always get the icon back from the application folder.

Hope it helps!

A icon just appeared on my screen that says phones


You may have accidently put an app icon to home scree. You can delete it by press and holding the icon. A trash icon will appear at the buttom of the screen. Drag the icon to the rash icon and you are done.
It wont delete anything. It will just remove the icon from home screen.
Also, to add any other icon on the home screen, go to menu, press and hold the desired app icon and it will be on the home screen.

How do you delete an app from an iphone


To uninstall an application purchased or otherwise installed from the iPhone AppStore, simply do the following:

1) hold your finger on either the icon for the application you wish to uninstall or any other icon until the icons on your home screen begin to shake or wiggle (the same action you take to move or re-arrange home screen icons)
2) click the "x" in the upper left hand corner of the icon for the application you wish to remove
3) delete the application from your iTunes applications tab

If you want to re-install the application at a later time, simply visit the AppStore and select the application again.
