Add Widgets to Home Screen - Samsung Galaxy Note® 10.1
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, tap Apps (located in the upper-right).
From the Widgets tab, touch and hold a 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 selected screen.
If applicable, select additional options to activate the widget.
Options vary depending upon the type of widget.
