There are several ways to create shortcuts (make an icon on your home screen for one touch accessibility). The first and the easiest is to open your app drawer. This is usually either a small arrow or a square made of 16 or so smaller squares located at the bottom of your screen. Once it opens, simply drag your finger up or down to scroll to the app you want and then press it and hold it until the app drawer goes away. From there you can choose where to put the icon.
If you have no empty spaces, you will have to delete the icon and start the process over from a screen with space for a new icon. To delete an icon off of one of your home screens, long-press (hold it down) and the item will “lift up” and a trashcan item will appear in the center of the bottom of your screen. Drag it to the trashcan and it will turn red. Then let go and the icon will be off your home screen. This will NOT delete the app from your phone. I will give instructions for that later.
The second way to create a shortcut to an application is to longpress an empty space on your home screen. A prompt will come up and you will want to click the shortcut button or it’s equivalent for your phone (perhaps add or create shortcut). From there you tap “application” and your app drawer should open. Just choose the app and it should appear on your home screen. Assuming you have room for it on your home screen.
To move a shortcut or widget just longpress it and drag it to where you want to put it before letting go. To move it left or right to another home screen pull it to the far edge of the screen until the page flips. This can be very tricky and may take a few tries.
