I cannot seem to change my home screen?

There's this home diagram with individual dashes next to it on the screen that I want as my home screen, however it's screen 3 instead of my home and I cannot figure out how to make it my home screen.

Actually, just press the little house icon on the page you want to be your home screen.

To whomever wants to change the home icon. (the little house) Tap the arrow that's on top of the home screen icon. You'll know which one because it's outlined in white. Then hit the screen you would like to switch it to.
