Hey @Nick, apparently a firmware update somewhere along the lines removed that ability. The easiest way to change the app shortcuts in the dock is to just install an alternative Launcher that will let you control the dock and icons. If you want to pay you can try Nova (they also have a free version), but I'm using Solo Launcher at the moment (which is free) and I love it. You can add any icons you want to the dock, make folders in the dock, change icons and folder styles, add folder titles, remove the separation bar, put as many apps in the dock as you want, run three docks at a time, and...well, you get my point.

I've been trying to change the five default icons in my s4 mini but I could not sort it out.

Can someone please assist?


There is an icon in the top right corner - looks like 3 squares and two arrows facing left and right. Tap this icon, the entire list is displayed, and you can select things and move them around. Easy peasy!
