How To Use Home Screen - LG G Pad

Learn how to use home screen on your LG G Pad. Simply swipe your finger to the left or right to view the panels. You can customize each panel with apps, downloads, widgets and wallpapers. The Quick Keys are available at the bottom part of the Home screen and provide easy, one-touch access to the functions you use the most.

Tap or touch

  • A single finger tap selects items, links, shortcuts and letters on the on-screen keyboard.

Touch and hold

  • Touch and hold an item on the screen by touching it and not lifting your finger until an action occurs. For example, to open a contact's available options, touch and hold the contact in the Contacts list until the context menu opens.


  • Touch and hold an item for a moment and then, without lifting your finger, move your finger on the screen until you reach the target position. You can drag items on the Home screen to reposition them.

Swipe or slide

  • To swipe or slide, quickly move your finger across the surface of the screen, without pausing when you first touch it (so you dont drag an item instead).For example, you can slide the screen up or down to scroll through a list, or browse through the different Home screen canvases by swiping from left to right (and vice versa).


  • Double-tap to zoom on a webpage or a map. For example, quickly doubletap a section of a webpage to adjust that section to fit the width of the screen. You can also double-tap to zoom in and out when viewing a picture and when using Maps. Double-tap a word to highlight it. Double-tap can also activate the KnockON feature to turn the touchscreen on or off.


  • Use your index finger and thumb in a pinching or spreading motion to zoom in or out when using the browser, Maps, or when browsing pictures.

Rotate the screen

  • From many applications and menus, the orientation of the screen adjusts to the device's physical orientation.


  • To select an item, touch the center of the icon.
  • Do not press too hard; the touch screen is sensitive enough to pick up a light, yet firm touch.
  • Use the tip of your finger to touch the option you want. Be careful not to touch any other keys.
