How to rearrange apps on your BlackBerry Applications screen

This brief tutorial will show you how to move/rearrange programs on your BlackBerry Applications window so that they’re ordered the way you want. The instructions outlined are specific to the BlackBerry Pearl, but I suspect are similar if not identical to other BlackBerry devices (I can’t confirm as I only have a Pearl).

  1. Start by opening your BlackBerry Applications screen. Use the trackball to navigate to the app you want to move. In this case, I’m going to move my Address Book.
  2. Click the Menu button on your BlackBerry (blackberry menu icon) and select Move.
  3. The application you had selected (again, in my case the Address Book) will now have a box surrounding it.
  4. Use the trackball to move the app to the location you want it to be in.
  5. Now click the trackball to finish moving it.
  6. Repeat the above steps until your Applications screen is ordered exactly as you want it.
  7. That’s it!

    This is one of the first things I teach people when I bring them their new Blackberry (along with how to hide them).

    It’s a bit of an irritation to pickup someones BB they’ve been using for months and still see the mailbox setup wizard as the first app.
