Tip & How-To about RIM BlackBerry? Tour 9630 Smartphone
You may have several applications on your BlackBerry that you don't use very often. But you don't want to delete them, because one day you might decide you want them. The easy solution is to hide them, so you don't see them during regular use, but they're there if you ever need them.
To hide a program, highlight it with the trackball and click the BlackBerry button (the one that looks like a paw print). Then just select Hide from the menu, and that program will disappear from view.
If you later decide you want it back, click the BlackBerry button anywhere in the Home folder (or whichever folder that application was located in) and choose Show All from the menu. Hidden programs will show up, but they will look fainter than the other programs, as if they were faded or washed-out.
You can leave your BlackBerry set to Show All to see the hidden program, or you can "unhide" it so it's always visible. To do that, highlight the program and click the BlackBerry button, then select Hide again to remove the check mark. The program will be visible again.
Once you've made the program visible again, you can either uncheck Show All or leave it checked. Show All can not be applied to some folders and not others; if you select Show All in the Games folder, for example, hidden applications in all folders (including Home) will be visible.
The same procedure works for folders as well as applications, and it also will work for applications or subfolders that are located in another folder beside the Home folder.
