Default Has anyone found out how to remove the "search" widget from home screens?

I'd love to be able to reclaim the space if possible.

NM...when "managing panels", the search widget does not appear to be part of the "panel".

Seems it is like the Nexus part of the phone...Only way I have been told is to install a different launcher for on it.

I also find it annoying that you cannot just remove it. So far not thrilled with the battery either. Took off chare this am at 9 and at 9:20 was down at 92% with no wifi on.
I am going to give it a week or so to see how it goes.

Just hold the widget for 2-3 seconds and drag it away

I'm actually getting pretty good battery life...only dropped 7% in the 5hrs. I was sleep last night. However I have Smart Actions disabling cellular data between 11pm and 5:30am. I think I'd have no problem getting between 1-2days of "my" normal use. My Motorola Defy has a setting where I can set a cellular data timeout period (i.e. - turn off data after 10, 15, 30 minutes, etc.), and I was hoping the HD was the same.

Personally, I feel that it is the LTE, or rather "weak LTE" (-93dBm and lower) signal, that is behind the high idle battery drain rates, as opposed to the wi-fi. My N900 would last a week on wi-fi only, w/no SIM installed. Same with my Defy.

I would not have created this thread if that were possible.

It's not possible. Also, good luck with another launcher. I tried Apex and Nova on it and it was a bit buggy. Wasn't too smooth and when I tried adding widgets, the background on the widget list was whited out. It was strange. You also can't add the circle widget on another launcher.

It doesn't play very nice with other launchers from my experience.

Meh...I'm good. I actually like the stock setup, and the fact that I only need (3) screens. I have Launcher Pro on my Defy, but it seems like a step back on the HD.

Right now being there is no Root on the herizon... I have found also from messing around yesterday I also could not install a launcher that seemed to play nice with this phone.

Between the locked in search bar and the buttoms on bottom it takes allot of space up and I just do not like it.
I will more than likely return this phone was really hoping it was going to be a step up for Moto...

While the search widget is still there, I have had great luck using ADW Ex on the phone. Not glitchy at all.
