    Driven Mad by Widgets

    Hi
    I had my tablet 3 days nd am loving it except for widgets which are driving me crazy..... I have 6 panels all containing random icons that I cant delete. I cant find a trash bin icon on the widgets screen but if i touch andd hold the widgets they move to he homescreen and I am able then to drag them to the trash can....but then when I go back to the widgets screen the icons still there! Argh! Aso I have NO idea how these icons re apearing on he widgets screen in the first place. Have done internet searches but all I can find is info on dragging the unwanted icon to the rubbish wih is so not working.

    Welcome to the forum.
    May I ask why you are trying to uninstall Widgets that aren't being used?
    The Widgets screen is so you can choose which ones to add to your home screen using the method you've done while trying to get rid of them.
    The ones that came stock on the Tab can't be uninstalled except by root your device. Any that you have downloaded can be uninstalled via myapps on the play store by scrolling to the one, tap it, tap uninstall or on the Tab go to settings, applications, scroll to the one you want to install, tap it, tap uninstall.

    Thanks for the reply...they look so untidy :-) if that makes any sense? And I'm not sure where a lot of them came from . I obviously need to get to grips with understanding things better. I do love it overall though ♥

    Once you get a little more comfortable you might try another home launcher. Look in the Play store for Go Launcher EX or HD. Basically what a launcher does is control the user interface, giving you a totally new and different look, feel and abilities to customize to a truly you Tab

    The only time one would go into Widgets is to select one to put on your home screen. You won't really need to see the untidy widget screen except for brief periods of time.

    yeah, the only way to get rid of those widgets in the widget screen is to delete the associated program.
