    ***Moved to a better section for ya***

    On the homescreen you press and hold on the icon, after a few seconds while your pressing it you can drag it around.

    I think he's referring to the "My Apps" section where they are all listed alphabetically.

    Ah ok, I don't believe there is a way to rearrange those.

    Nope, no way to move them in "My Apps". I am not exactly sure why you would want to. What are you trying to ultimately do? Perhaps we can find a workaround for you.

    Thanks. I just wanted to put the ones I use the most together so I don't have to scann all of them to find the one I want to open. I just got my xoom so I'm sure there is a better way.

    Ahhhhh....

    Try this...
    1) On the very top right-hand on your homescreen click on the '+'
    2) Tap "App shortcuts" in the middle of the screen
    3) Tap and hold the app icon of your choice (and keep holding it)
    4) Now move it to one of the screen on the top
    5) Let go and select the screen you just moves the icon to (Note that it just made a copy)

    You can play with app shortcuts on your home screen this way. It takes a while to get used to this.

    After a while you may want to group the icons on your screen in folders. Two great apps for this are Circle Launcher and Folder Organizer.

    Happy organizing!
    Keep on Xoomin'

    I use app organizer from the market, then minimalistic text widget. There is also circle launcher in the market. This customization process is part of the fun. Check out the screen shot thread in the general section of the forum. There is 40 plus pages that will show you what I am talking about. There are also several youtube videos that will walk you through this process.
