How to delete Android widgets from the Home screen


If you're not going to completely uninstall a widget by deleting its application, you just want to delete it from the Home screen, all you have to do is go to the home screen page where the widget you intend to remove is located.


At this point, all you have to do is put your finger on the widget to be removed and hold it down for a few seconds, until you feel the device vibrate or, in any case, until you see that the widget can be resized and / or moved to another screen.

Without taking your finger off the device screen, drag the selected widget to the button Remove (which should be marked with the dustbin) appeared at the top or bottom of the home screen (depending on the device in use) and let go.

Puff! The selected widget will disappear from the Android home screen but, if necessary, it can be restored (since it has not been uninstalled), following the same procedure you used to insert it on the home screen of the device.

As an alternative to what has been said in the previous lines, you can remove a widget from the Home screen of your device in another way: after making a long tap on the widget you want to delete, you should see the button appear (X) in the upper left corner of the same. By pressing on the symbol in question and then on the item Remove (in the menu that appears on the screen), you should be able to remove the widget from the Home screen. Easier than that ?!

How to move Android widgets to another screen

As I promised you in the introduction of the post, let's see now how to move eroid widgets to another screen. If you do not intend to completely remove a widget from the home screen or uninstall it from your device, this is the only alternative left to you to delete, so to speak, the element from the Android home screen.

To proceed, you must first go to the home screen page where the widget you want to move to another screen is located. At this point, all you have to do is place your finger on the item in question and hold it down for a few seconds, until you feel the device vibrate or, in any case, until you see that the widget becomes editable.

At this point, drag the widget to the left or right edge of the screen (depending on whether you intend to move it to the previous or next page of the home screen) and release it as soon as you have identified a "corner" that is right for you. If necessary, then resize the element using i shot you see on its perimeter (if it is possible to do so) and tap on an "empty" point on the home screen to save the changes made. If there are no additional pages on your home screen where you can store the widget, call up the launcher edit menu (usually just make a long tap on a point on the screen without icons) and press the appropriate item, which could be represented by the symbol [+].

Did you see that it wasn't that complicated to move widgets to another home screen? Now all you have to do is repeat the operation for the other widgets as well, so as to better organize the screens of your device.
