EditQuestions and Answers

I cannot seem to change my homescreen?

There's this home diagram with individual dashes next to it on the screen that I want as my homescreen, however it's screen 3 instead of my home and I cannot figure out how to make it my home screen.

If you see dashes next to the home screen diagram you want then this means that it is unavailable either for your device or for free. Please let me know in this section exactly where you are viewing this diagram.

If you pinch the screen down all screens will show..can delete blanks and new screen using the X screen. My problem is my home screen changed to another and need to set back on the wrong one. Rearranging pages doesn't fix it
