Galaxy Tab E LTE: How Do I add a widget to a Home screen of my Samsung Galaxy Tab E LTE?

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018


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 (weather updates, calendar events and many others).

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Add a widget to a Home Screen

1. To add a widget, touch and hold an empty area on one of the Home screen. You can also pinch your fingers together on the screen to acces the menu.
