Thread: remove the search from home screen?

  1. #1
    Default remove the search from home screen?
    Is there anyway to remove the search that's on 3.0 home screen? I never use it and it is annoying.

    I assume your talking about spotlight? If so , no there is no way to remove it or stop it from coming up.

    Go to settings>general>home> search, and you can select what you want to search, that's all you can do to adjust settings for spotlight.... I've also heard if you deselect all search options it frees up memory, but that might just be hear say....

    I agree, i love spot light. I love it on my mac too. It is 100x quicker than finding it in a list or screen of apps. Maybe its a power user feature

    Yes perhaps the mere mortals just dont think to use it

    I just started using spotlight. I'd rather it be an icon I can put on the dock instead of the "first page," but it is coming in handy for finding apps I know I have but didn't see on a quick page flip.
