How Do I Add & Remove Widgets From The Home Screen On My Tab 3

Widgets are small applications that are designed to provide a service or function. Widgets can be a helpful way to display information such as weather (feeds) or to activate a shortcut to a phone setting. Android handsets can come pre-loaded with handy widgets that assist and manage functions or provide a quick way to access a setting.

    Widgets may require online connectivity or require a paid subscription for a service. Please read over the terms of agreement for the widget when applicable for additional information.  

    The amount of active widgets per home screen varies depending on widget display.  

    Widgets can reside on either the Applications or home screen which are different than a shortcut.
