    I jsut got my Treo 650 from sprint, and there are some annoying programs I have no idea how to get rid of. Mainly "Quick Tour" and "Realplayer". How am I able to get rid of them? Also, is their any way to get rid of certain items on "all" tab? I don't use half of them most of the time, and they take up space. And lastly, while we're at it, anyone know of a program that puts the scroll bar on the left isntead of the right (I'm left handed). Thanks.

    Those apps are installed in ROM and are almost untouchable. Almost, I said; if you're feeling brave, conduct a search for "Custom ROM Shadowmite". More than likely, though, you don't care if they're actually deleted, you just don't want to see them. If that's the case, Obfuscate will do nicely.

    Also, is their any way to get rid of certain items on "all" tab? I don't use half of them most of the time, and they take up space.
    If they're in RAM, delete them from the App Launcher's App/Delete menu. Otherwise, use Obfuscate. If they're in RAM, but you don't want to delete them, hide them with ChangeMe.

    Download Obfuscate from this site. It will allow you to "hide" the icons. The programs are part of the ROM, and not easily removed. It can be done, but it involves editing and reflashing your ROM.

    Other than turning your Treo upside down, I think you're probably out of luck.

    A third party launcher like zLauncher allows the scrollbar to be on the left hand side instead of the right.

    Okay, why install programs here that take up precious memory when just changing the category will accomplish the same thing? I just put every program I want to view on the opening screen in the main category, and move the others to system or utilities. Then, instead of using the 'all' view, I just use the 'main' view.

    To do this Corbet just hit the home button to get to the launch screen and press the menu button. Click on 'catagory' then change each one that you would like to see into one catagory, and the others into others. Then choose the preferred catagory on the home screen.

    What difference does the category make? Memory is Memory. Just because you move it into a different category does not mean you free up memory. The ONLY way you free memory (excluding those in ROM) is to delete the program.

    Am I reading you wrong??

    Well, maybe I'm reading it wrong. I thought that Bill Gamble wrote: "More than likely, though, you don't care if they're actually deleted, you just don't want to see them. If that's the case, Obfuscate will do nicely."

    To me, that means that he's not deleting the programs, just hiding it. To me, you can hide the programs without adding Obfuscate. You're right if he's still planning on deleting the programs, but I read something else into the statement I quoted in my previous post.

    The memory I'm talking about is the added memory space used up by adding Obfuscate.

    Okay.

    I guess I was reading you wrong, since you were reading him wrong, but in the end...nobody is wrong.

    Just ans FYI Obfuscate is like 10K.

    It's very small and the benefit, to me at least, is worth the very small memory footprint of the software. I use it and Zlauncher both.

    can someone please provide me with a link to zlauncher?

    I just created a category called "seldom used apps" and then hid that category. Any apps that I don't want to see on a regular basis I throw in there. No need for additional software for that.

    Okay, I will make my obligatory save 4mb of internal memory link here:
