    Hi,

    I somehow lost my time/weather widget on my homescreen & when I try to add it back, I get the message "widget is already on your home screen". It is not visible, however, it is showing on another screen. How do I remove from the other screen & place it on my home screen? I appreciate and feedback on this.

    Long press on the widget, and drag to your home screen.

    Thanks. I tried that & still can't get the widget to show. Could it be that because the widget is showing on another screen it will not show?

    Hold down on the widget on that one screen and drag it over how many other screens to your home screen. This will take if off the that one screen and put it on home. No need to open the app drawer.

    Your launcher should give you the option to show all of your widgets, so find the weather widget, long press and drag to the screen you are calling "home". Make sure it has enough space on it with no other icons on it and it should plop right on it. If it is already on a screen, delete it from that screen first.
