Samsung Galaxy Tab A 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.

Add a Widget

  1. To add a Widget, 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.

  2. Touch Widgets.  

  3. Touch and hold the desired widget.  

  4. Drag the widget to the Home screen and then release.   

  5. If the widget is resizable, you will see a frame around the widget. To adjust the size of the widget, touch and drag the edges of the frame.   

  6. When you are satisfied with the new size, release the widget, and then exit edit mode by touching anywhere outside the widget.  

  7. To move the widget, you can simply touch and hold the widget, and then drag it to a new location. 

Remove a Widget

  1. To remove the widget, touch and hold the widget until the edit screen appears.  

  2. While continuing to hold, drag the widget to Remove.  

    Removing the widget from the screen will not delete it from your tablet.
