    let me introduce myself first. Been searching this forums on many topics and its time i joined. Apologise if this is not the right place for the post

    i know how to move apps from its folder to trash apps drawer in 2 ways, but i can not do it the same way with widgets

    one way is :

    press and hold in trash widgs drawer tab
    select apps
    there i can see the lists of apps , but not widgets
    if i select one app the it will move the app but not its widgest

    other way

    in apps drawer press and hold one app and release it in the home page on top where it said edit.

    that opotion of edit its not showing with widgets only app info

    Its very annoying to have the widgets drawer so full of crap widgets

    thank you

    I'm not sure about a "trash drawer" I don't have one on my HTC One (M8) or Samsung Note 10.1 (2014) Tablet but when I'm using Nova Launcher on either device all I have to do is press and hold an app or widget on my homescreen then tap on remove when it pops up.

    Welcome to the Android Forums and let us know which device you're using,

    Thank you dontpanic,
    What you sugest is how to delete a widget from home or any other screen.
    What im looking for is other thing. You have 4 drawers : apps, widgets, trash apps, trash widgets... where androids keeps all the apps and widgets stored. I can move items from apps to trash apps, but i can not do the same with widgets

    1. Nova doesn't have 4 drawers. Android never had. Even by default. On default Nova settings, you only have Apps and Widgets. Trash Widgets and Trash Apps would be something you added on your own, using Nova's tabs feature.

    2. You cannot move anything out of the Widgets tab because it's just a widgets list. Widgets aren't individual apps you can manage.

    You are so right, I must have created this drawers with nova a long time ago and thought it was an android defoult.

    It must be nice if one could move/store individual widgets or deleted them from the original drawers

    Sorry for the confusion and many thanks for your quick help
