How to remove app icons from home screens


Being a new android user,  when I got my IdeaPad K1 tablet,  I put some apps on one of the 5 home screens.


How can I remove the ones that I no longer want?


You can press and hold the icon unti the garbage bin icon appears on the top right of the sceen. Click on the garbage icon to delete the icon your currently pressing.


Additionally, if you just wish to move the icon to another screen or to another location on the screen, press and hold and then drag the icon to move it.

On my P10 I have managed to duplicate the Lenovo Tips icon and I want to remove the second, unnecessary, icon. No matter for how long I hold the icon at the top of the screen, absolutely nothing happens. Can anyone offer any assistance please?
