    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen.
    At the bottom, we will see icons. What we want to do in this video is to show how to turn on and off the option to add the icons of new applications to the home screen. We can choose that when we download a new application, it will add the icon of that application directly to the home screen. We would then see it here. It will also add it to the applications folder, and that might be enough for us, in which case we would want to turn the option off.

    To do this, we need to open up the applications folder.
    To do that, we need the icon located at the bottom of the home screen in the middle. It looks like a grid made of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder. Press down on it and it will open up our applications folder.
