Removing native Nokia N9 apps from home screen

Basically to remove any apps from Nokia N9, you need to go to the applications list view, touch and hold, and press the red "x" button next to an app you want to remove.

This method, however, does not allow you to remove particular apps e.g. YouTube (which is basically just a link to m.youtube.com). To remove all the native apps which do not allow uninstalling via "touch and hold", follow these instructions.

All the icons visible in the home screen are created by .desktop files in /home/user/.local/share/applications. Use a good file manager on Nokia N9 (e.g. FileBox) to navigate there and see all the .desktop files.

Removing these files will result in removing the icon from the home screen.
