Rearanging the "Fixed" sort order of Prime's Apps icons - Joe Horn - 10-02-2013

The Prime User Guide doesn't seem to mention that you can rearrange the "Fixed" sort order of the icons in the Apps Library. The following example will swap the first two icons' positions, but you can use the same method to rearrange all the icons.

First, press Apps, Sort, and select Fixed. You'll see this familiar sight:

Now press the Function icon and hold it down steadily for one full second. Arrows will appear in the corners of that icon:

Now DRAG the icon to the right:

Now let go.

Done! Your new customized arrangement of the "Fixed" sort will remain "fixed" that way until you change it again.

Rearranging many icons gets kinda fun; it reminds me of those sliding tile puzzles we all played with as kids.

Practical use: The icons for six built-in apps and all your custom apps are offscreen when you press Apps in "Fixed" sort order. This trick lets you move your favorite ones up so that they are available immediately.

Thanks for the tip!

Joe, can you change the ICON picture, create your own?

You can only make copies of the existing icons in the current version. What future versions will allow remains to be seen.

Haha! That's awesome! Since "click hold" mouse actions can be detected, it bet it won't be too long before we see a tile-moving puzzle game appear with the touchscreen being used for input.
