How to change or get rid of home page clock background pic?Tips

    I have a brand new Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5. I hate having 1/3 of my home page taken up by the insipid background photo associated with the clock. I've Googled and checked all sorts of search terms, various forums and enthusiast sites, and have searched the forums for this question, haven't found the question much less an answer. Lots of stuff on customizing the lock screen. Not much on customizing the home screen and nothing about my issue with the clock. It's frickin' huge! Why??? I don't care about dual time or weather and I'd love to either change the image background or better yet change to a small clock with no background. Remember I'm talking about the clock on the HOME page, not the lock screen. You can shrink the clock on the lock screen, and it doesn't have the photo background.

    Anyone? Bueller? Thanks

    I'm not sure how yours is set up but I have a weather widget on the home screen which takes up a good majority of the screen. If you want to get rid of it just press and hold. You should see an X at the top of the page. Drag it up there and it should go away.

    Tried this 3 times, it didn't work. Then I read your post, thought "what the hell, I'll try again". And it worked! Yowza! Thanks a ton. Why it didn't work earlier, I don't know. Maybe the phone is still waking up.

    I recommend looking into HD Widgets if you'd like to get a smaller weather widget as an alternative for the very large default one. It does cost .99 cents however.

    I didn't care for it on my home screen either. I do like the information so I just moved it off the home screen to another screen.
