What are widgets and how do I add or remove them from my Samsung Galaxy Y?

Widgets

 

A widget is a simple application extension that is often part of a larger application already installed on the device. Widgets come in all shapes and sizes, are customizable, and reside on any available Home screen for quick access. Widgets provide you with quick access to information without requiring you to open the app that manages this information. An example is the Calendar widget, which provides you a quick view of your upcoming calendar events without opening the Calendar application.

 

 

Adding a widget

 

To easily add a widget to a Home screen touch and hold on an empty space on the Home screen until the context menu appears. From this menu select Widgets. Touch and hold on an available widget. Position the widget on the screen and release it to add it to the Home screen in your specified position. If the widget is too large you will receive the following message: "No more room on this page." The device will then attempt to place the widget on a Home screen that has the necessary space.

 

Deleting a widget

To delete a widget from a Home screen touch and hold on the widget. Drag the widget to the Remove Remove from Home Screen Icon bar at the top of your screen and release it. The widget will be removed from the Home screen but will remain available through performing the steps above, should you ever wish to put it back on your Home screen.
