Adding A Home Page
I've learned SO much from all of you that has helped me get the most out of my fairly new Nexus. I'm hoping you can help me once more with a little customization.
My phone is basically stock. Which is fine for what I do and use it for. It came with the 4 'home' screens (the main page, the one to the left and the two to the right.) What if I want to add another home screen for my fav. apps? I'm sort of an over organizer so I use each screen for certain things. And I don't use all the space on the screen to make it easier for me to swipe between streens without starting up an app I didn't want to start up (I did this frequently the first week and this was my solution). I keep at least 1 row of the screen free so I can swipe here and there. Which means, I want to add another 'home' screen for items I use regularly. Is there a way to do this?
And while we're at it..what are the icons for on the bottom of the screen to the left of the homepage? I get the wifi, blue tooth and brightness on the right. But what are the other two and do they have to be there? Can I get rid of this little tool bar all together?
Thank you all for the help. I'm having a great time with my little phone and really is because of you guys!

I would try one of the launcher apps. Nova Launcher and the others all allow up to 7 screens that can be changed in the app settings.
Wait, just to be sure. The default number of homescreens is 5. The main, 2 on the left and 2 on the right. How come you only have 4? Could you please check?
What you see on the left screen at the bottom is the power widget. It's Wifi on/off, Bluetooth on/off, GPS on/off, Autosync on/off, and Auto brightness on/off

I don't think I swiped enough to see the other page. So yep I do have 5. And it's come in very handy. Thank you!

Thank you..I'm off to investigate what launchers are and what they do.
