Rename the icon on the home screen

Is it possible to rename an icon that you put on your home screen? For example, I wanted a Hotmail icon on my home screen, but all I get is "sign in" (or something like that) and try as I might, I can't change it as you can a normal folder (click twice slowly on the bottom until it appears he highlighted and then type the new name).

Thank you


Depending on the browser used, it is easy to rename the shortcuts.

In Chrome (and the stock browser), just tap and hold any bookmark, and choose "Edit Bookmark".  Change the name, and then drag it to the home page.

  • Web page to create a custom icon ' favorite d on the home screen.

    Years... as iOs6 days, there was a web page where you can enter in a URL, tap the icon png, and it would be you can create a bookmark on your home screen.

    It was, iirc, originally designed to allow you to make icons to toggle the settings like airplane mode.

    I used it to make an icon for a url mailto icon on my iPad v1 and my iPod Touch 4.

    ANYWAY, I now have an iPhone and would be like putting said icon/mailto bookmark on it as well, but my search on Google for the page isn't going well, so I thought I would ask if someone remembers a thing like that.

    Well, my googling this issue continues, I found that what I had used was a "DATA URL".

    At the time, I did it with a Web site that would generate them with icons you load, or those that he had... that cannot be found at all.

    BUT, by getting the "data url" when I click on the icon on my iPad, and then paste this url long extremly in safari on the iPhone... leave the "loading" page, triggering the mail, then cancelling the mail and THEN by saving this page (the data page url) to the home screen, it created the icon (the icon image is stored in the public record of my selection) with the name "program".

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Facebook icon not showing on the home screen

    The facebook icon does not appear on the home screen.  I deleted the facebook app, downloaded again, removed the battery, resent service books, re-registered my Blackberry.  Nothing works.  Any help?

    1. look in EVERY folder on your device... Applications, instant messaging, downloads, etc.
    If you don't see it still, look at the Options > advanced > Applications. Do you not see it listed there?

    2 is it hidden? On your home screen, press Menu > SHOW ALL, so that ALL DISPLAY is checked.

    Now, back in ALL these folders.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones bb9900 - icons for the native tasks and memopad apps can be moved to the home screen

    I want the icons for the native "tasks" and "Notepad" apps in OS7 appears on the home screen of my BB9900.  The icons currently on the "common" screen only and the apps work from there.

    I've tried holding down the button menu until a menu jump to the top, but the menu does not include the options of 'move' or 'move to folder '.  In fact, the options of 'move' do not seem to appear for all elements of the 'common' screen

    Someone knows what to do?  FYI, I use the version of the b-berry for Mac desktop software.



    "Frequent" is a dynamic screen; your BB automatically there are some things that you use frequently. There is therefore, no manual way to move that you describe (since its automatic and dynamic, based on your usage). On the contrary, what you find is the master for these applications... icon probably they are inside your "Applications" folder, normally visible on the screen "All".

    Good luck!
