Windows Mobile Smartphone devices have very customizable home screens, but there is no built-in utility to add or modify what you see on the home screen.

There are two ways you go about customizing your home screen. One involves using third-party homescreen design software that you can get from any PDA software reseller. The other way involves manually editing the homescreen configuration file in a text editor.

In either case, you will need to add the NewsBreak plugin to the page with this following piece of code:

<plugin clsid="{4F9AABF2-187B-4caa-8485-13C516C612D8}"
name="NewsBreak"><defaultPath>\\Windows\\full.home.xml</defaultPath>
</plugin>

This will load the plugin and display it wherever you specify on the page.
