Default Change Apps in Home Screen Bottom Dock

On my captivate there are four apps on the bottom of all home screens: Phone, Email, Browser, and Apps.

Any way I can change it? It doesnt seem to be accessible/customizable.

Yep, I figured it out. Follow this:

1. From the Home screen select "Applications"
2. Menu> View Type> Customizable Grid
3. Menu> Edit

You can now slide any App down to the bottom dock. You can even change it back to "Alphabetical Grid" and it will still save the Apps on the dock.
