    Cannot Delete/Remove Icon

    Since my Australian XOOM recently received its final Android update to 4.0.4,I have attempted to delete an icon from the main screen.I try a long press. Whilst doing this, an X with the word "remove" next to itappears in the top centre of the screen. Touching the X simultaneouslydoes nothing. Ending the long press results in the X disappearing.Can anyone help?Bree.

    Too easy Mate - when you long press the icon and then you get the remove button at the top of the screen, just drag and drop the offending icon onto the remove button and then, poof, it's gone.

    Sorry, Claudermilk beat me to it. But if you Google it there are all sorts of guides and help for the Xoom in general, or Jelly bean updates . . and many of which will link back to this forum or others!

    Footnote: I rarely ask a question about *anything* (tech and non-tech) these days without Googling it . . such a wonderful universe we live in!
