How do I add a widget to the Home screen of my Samsung Galaxy Tab® S 10.5?

Last Update date : 2014.12.23


A widget is an interactive item that can be added to the Home screens of your device to give you quick access to information or tasks you perform frequently. For example, widgets can provide weather updates or notify you of upcoming calendar events. Your device comes with a variety of preloaded widgets that can be customized to fit your needs. You can download additional widgets from Google Play™ Store.

Add a Widget

1. To add a widget to a Home screen, touch and hold the Home screen, and then touch Widgets.

2. Touch and hold an available widget until the edit screen appears.

3. Drag the widget to the desired location and release it to add it to the Home screen. If the widget is too large, your device will display a No more room on this page message and automatically place the widget on a Home screen with the necessary space. If there is no room on any existing Home screen but additional Home screens are available, a new Home screen will be added with the widget.

Remove a Widget

To remove a widget from a Home screen, touch and hold the widget until the edit screen appears. Drag the widget to Remove 1 at the top of the screen and release it. The widget is removed from the Home screen but is still available in the Widgets tab.

Resize a Widget

Touch and hold a widget, and then release it. If the widget can be resized, you will see a frame 1 around it. Touch and drag the frame to adjust the size of the widget. When you are satisfied with the new size, release the widget and touch anywhere outside of it to exit the edit mode. See the example of a resizable widget below.
