Help How do you get rid of icons?

I just received my p3 but there was no manual. I know how to get rid of widgets, but does anyone know how to remove unwanted icons?

Thanks

EDIT: I found the manual file (hiding in a pre-loaded self extracting archive). But my questions still stands.

there is no way to hide/show icons on the P3's homescreen. the only Samsung players with that capability are the new R1 and the even new-er M1.

Thanks for the info. It's a shame that's the case, not to mention a little odd considering the p3 is priced more expensive then the R1 on their website >.<

The only way is to create a custom UCI. With Custom UCI, you control which icons you have and where they are placed. It's not dynamic though. Each layout you want will require it's own custom UCI.

Or you can do what I did and use one of the default styles, then cover up any unwanted icons with widgets, lol. I accidentally deleted all the games that came preloaded and covered up the icon with the slideshow widget. xD
