Adding a widget to your Home screen

  2. On the Widgets tab, you can:
    • Slide left or right to browse through the complete set of widgets.
    • Tap to search for specific widgets.
    • Tap All Widgets to choose from a selection menu.
    Note: Some widgets are available in different styles and sizes.
  3. Drag a widget to a home screen thumbnail where you want to add it.
You can also add widgets that allow you to quickly switch on or off certain settings such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth®. Tap All Widgets > Settings, and then tap the widget that you want.
