Add Widgets to Home Screen - Samsung Galaxy Tab® 2 (7.0)
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 a blank area.
Tap Apps and widgets.
From the Wigets tab, touch and hold the preferred widget.
Drag the widget to the preferred Home screen then release.
For the widget to be successfully added, there must be sufficient space within the selected screen.
If applicable, select additional options to activate the widget.
Options vary depending upon the type of widget.
