Such a big screen and so few icons…
…ahhh that’s more like it.
A comment was posted on one of my videos recently asking me how I had so many icons on my homescreen. The regular homescreen has four rows and four columns, whereas my homescreen has seven rows and five columns.
Well, the answer is: I use a different homescreen and that’s what makes Android so great – you can do anything you want with it.
Here I am I changing my homescreen from the one I use to the default one which is called TouchWizz. To get a new homescreen you need to download a homescreen launcher from the Googleplay store. In this demonstration I am going to show you nova launcher, but there are plenty of other homescreen launchers to choose from.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed your launcher you will need to switch to it. Usually the best thing to do is open the application as soon as you download it that should reset your default launcher and give you the opportunity to choose one. Once you’ve done that go into the options for the launcher. In Nova Launcher the option you want is desktop, and then you want desktop grid.
Now Nova Launcher is designed for both tablets and phones so you can go crazy and have 12 rows and columns, but as you see this looks absolutely ridiculous. So after a little play I’ve settled on seven rows and five columns and that works just fine for me. But that might be too many for you or not enough. The freedom is there for you to choose, so ditch the default homescreen launcher and check any one of the many free launchers available for Android.
