Has anyone been able to remove the Google Search Bar from the Desktop? I have gone through the process of removing it based on generic steps for most android devices without success. I am left with a black bar that says "search".
I would love to clean up the desktop and make room for apps and widgets, and enjoy my background. rolleyes.gif

As far as I know, the only way of doing this is using a different launcher. I'm using Nova launcher, which has a free and a paid version. This comes with a lot of nifty extras as well. Recommended

Nova launcher has worked for me. Initially I just worked around it by putting all my icons & stuff on screens 2-n, and left the screen 1 alone with it's ugly search bar and never took a look at it.

Same here, i really like a tidy desktop so i was using the second screen. Nova is working great, i've only played around for a few minutes with it. As a Cosmo owner for less than a month I can't convey enough how much a positive experience with the device relies on customizing to personal preference.

+1 For Nova Launcher

I also installed it initially just to get rid of the Google Search bar. As it turned out though, a nice side benefit is that it's a really nice piece of software and has made my Cosmo's home screen much more appealing and useful.

Thanks for a hint, Nova Launcher is excelent itself and what's more - it really helped me to get rid of enourmously large Google search line. Another feature - I can have much more (and smaller) icons on just one screen. Thank you.

Just by the way - isn't there some Czech Cosmo thread / backer that could help me with my Czech Cosmo keyboard ?
