Add Widgets to Home Screen - Samsung Galaxy Tab® S2
Widgets are mini-apps (e.g., weather, clock, calendar, etc.) that can be added to a Home screen. They aren't the same as shortcuts as they generally display info and take up more space than a single icon.
From a Home screen, touch and hold an empty space.
Tap Widgets (located at the bottom).
From the Widgets tab, touch and hold a widget.
If it is a grouping of widgets, tap the grouping then touch and hold the individual widget.
Drag the widget to the preferred Home screen then release.
For the widget to be successfully added, there must be sufficient space on the screen.
Tap an empty space on the Home screen to set the widget in place.
If applicable, tap additional options to activate the widget.
Options vary depending upon the type of widget.
