    Erasing App Icons

    I downloaded an App, and in the process created a second icon of some sort. (A shortcut?) I've since deleted the App, but that second icon is still there. When I touch it, it says "Application is not installed." How do I get rid of this icon?

    If you are talking about the app icon on a homescreen, tap and hold it till a X appears at the top of the screen and drag the icon to the X then let go.

    Oh, my goodness. When I think of the time I spent trying to figure this out and it was so simple, I want to kick myself. Thank you for your help.
