    Tap and hold on a clear space on your home screen and select widget. Scroll to clock and tap on it. There are several clocks available. including the one you have lost that contains the weather.

    I had the same problem and followed your directions but the only place the clock widget shows up is in Setting --> Applications --> Manage Applications but I can't do anything with it there...

    can anyone help me? I figured I'd just re-install it but I can't even find it at the app store :thinking:

    thank you

    Dear Sir, I have the same problem. I tried what you advise but the only option that is available is a analog clock that I really don't like. Is there a way to get the original weather/clock back? I thank you in advance.

    I also have lost my clock from the home screen and am unable to find it. When I follow the quoted directions there are no clocks in the widgets list. I tried the 'Browse all HTC widgets' option and get a message telling me the app 'Rosie Utility' has stopped unexpectedly and to please try again. When I go to the list of apps and look for Rosie Utility it is there but the only lit button is the 'Clear data' button (it has 40.00 KB of data). Any clues or hints?

    edit: I'm running a Desire S running Android 2.3.5

    Rosie is the HTC Sense app launcher. Unfortunately I've not used Sense since 2010, so don't recall it very well.

    You might get your best answer in the Desire S forum, though I suspect it's not very different in this respect from the Desire.

    First thing I would try is rebooting the phone then if that doesn't work clear the Rosie data. You will need to set up your home screens again though.

    Thanks nicks, reboot was all it needed. Appreciate your help. Will spend some time in the lounge now to see if it's as good as the traders den lounge. Be warned, I'm a post whore there, in six years I've made nearly 30,000 posts...

    :D

    I've read all the comments and the 7 widgets that were spread across the home screens appear to have gone from my phone altogether? So I can't reset them. These included clock/weather widget, Google search widget, bookmarks widget, social media widget, music widget, gallery widget, international clocks widget.

    How this came about....
    Phone froze, often I can lock the screen and unlock it and problem would be gone, not this time. I couldn't even switch off, no reaponse, so took back off and battery out. Put it back in and all the home screens were empty. Tried restart, as I thought it might be phone didn't load properly after putting battery back in, but still no widgets that were there before

    So you cannot add the widgets back either? Can you add any widgets to the homescreen?

    You could try a few generic fixes, e.g. go into recovery and wipe the cache partition, pull the battery out and keep it out for a couple of minutes (to ensure the semiconductors have cleared). Otherwise can you still use the apps associated with the widgets (clock for example)? Has anything else been lost?

    If nothing works then it could be worth trying a backup followed by a factory reset. In the extreme a reflash of the device, but for that we'd need to know what device you have (this part of the forum is for the original Desire, aka A8181, aka Bravo, from 2010, but people with all sorts of models with Desire in the name post here so I don't take that for granted), and also which country/region/carrier it was bought from (to get the right firmware package). The biggest problem for the original Desire these days is that it's so old that a lot of download links for resources no longer work.
