Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Adding a Widget

A widget is an interactive item that can be added to the Home screens of your tablet to give you quick access to information or tasks you perform frequently. Your tablet comes with preloaded widgets. You can download additional widgets from the Google Play Store.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Add a Widget

  1. To change the wallpaper, touch and hold an empty area of the Home screen.

    If your default Home screen is full, it may be helpful to swipe to a Home screen with less content.
