Widget Problem on Home Screen

    I had a weather widget on my home screen, and I had taken it off to try other weather widgets. I didn't like any of the other widgets as much, so I wanted to go back to my original choice. However, every time I try to put it back on my home screen, a message pops up saying it's already on my home screen, which of course it is not.

    I have tried a number of times, but keep getting the same message. Is there somewhere else I can look to find a way to get my original weather widget back on my home screen?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Have you tried uninstalling the widget, reinstalling and adding it to the homescreen?

    Or have you tried rebooting the phone (in order to restart the launcher, which is the app that draws the desktops, as well as clear and refresh the RAM and processes generally).

    Or, long press where it used to be. The option to remove it may still be there. If so, remove and re-add.
