How to reset your home screen layout (and delete all the app icons at once)


Home Screen Hell: it’s the place where all your app and game icons go to spend their miserable eternity. You’ve amassed so many pages and icons that after spraining both thumbs attempting to remove them one-by-one, you’ve officially given up. Well, it’s time to un-give up, because we’re taking you on a 1-minute journey to a hidden place called the Fountain of Sanity.

How to delete all your app icons:

  • Open your device settings
  • Tap on “Apps”
  • Tap on “Google App”
  • Tap on “Storage”
  • Tap on “Manage Space”
  • Tap on “Clear Launcher Data”
  • Tap “Okay” to confirm

We didn’t say it was hard, but boy is it a pesky place to find. Even the expert Android user would likely be searching in all the right places, but still come up empty handed. Let’s hope Google makes managing home screens an easier task with Android N, and we think they will.

I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?
