Rearrange Shortcut Icons On Your BlackBerry PlayBook

Easily move the icons on your BlackBerry PlayBook to where you want them.

If you're new to the RIM PlayBook tablet, you might hate the way it arranges icons. I know I did. So I arranged them the way I liked. Here's how I did it.

Moving shortcuts around on the PlayBook is similar to how you do it on the iPad. Simply tap and hold an icon until it starts to pulsate. Notice the checkmark on the upper left part of the screen. Keep your finger on the icon and drag it to where you want it to go. When you're done, just tap on the checkmark.

That's all there is to it. Arrange the icons for faster access and you'll be happier with your PlayBook. I sure am.
