Hi..
1. I would like to remove the Google quick search box from my home screen. How to do that ?

2. I dont want my gmail emails to get loaded, since I dont use Gmail, but everytime the Tablet starts, it signs to Gmail and loads the email. I just dont want the Gmail to work, but my Android Market Signin should stay fine. How to handle this ?

3. While tying, it sounds, vibrates. I dont need that. Where is the option to disable that 2 things ?

I assume you mean the search widget? Hold your finger on it, after a few seconds a little trash can shows up at the bottom of the screen and (without lifting your finger) drag the widget into the trash can.

from the main home screen: push the menu button (bottom left of the buttons below the screen on the device), select "Settings", then select "Accounts and sync"...there should be an option under manage accounts to disable gmail sync.

Same settings menu (menu buttons ----~ select settings.) This time select "sound settings". Silent mode will turn off all sound except for media and alarms. Haptic feedback should turn off the vibrate on buttons (you don't like that? I love that it vibrates, makes it feel more like I'm actually hitting a button...but now you know how to turn this off.)

Hope that helps.

Great!

I just did all that and my problems are solved.

Here are few more questions,
1. Why Am I still not able to store the apps to my Internal SD, which is 13GB.

2. Even if there are no widgets on my Home Screen, it still shows 5 steps navigation on top.
How to remove/disable that navigation ?

Few more ,

1. I have all of my books as PDF, since I use an iPhone 4 and I read them on iBooks.
Same I expect to do with Galaxy Tab.

I just connected the Tab to PC and made a new folder, Books and moved my 2GB of 32 books.
But when I open the eBook application on Tab, it doesnt show anything, except one, which I dont know, from where it came.
Looks like a default book.

Then I went to FILES and went to my folder and clicked on the PDF.
Its opening with Office application, while I need all PDF books to display on eBooks application, so I can read whenever I need.

What to do ?
