    I update today my Samsung S5 to Lollipop, but I can´t find the Widgets. How do I do?

    I moved your thread into the S5 forum as it may be different for Samsung's Touchwiz. As far as my Nexus 7 on Lollipop when I open my app drawer I have the option to toggle between apps and widgets at the top of the screen. I'm not sure if that has carried through in Touchwiz.

    If not, I'm sure another device owner can let you know where to find them.

    Try long pressing on a blank area on your home page to see if a menu comes up for your widgets.

    My widgets are in the same spot on my S5 as they were before the update. I swipe across the home screen to the next screen and then long hold that screen and at the bottom it says wallpapers, widgets and home screen settings, is that what you want? Where were your widgets before the update? Mary

    have you tried using Nova Launcher?

    That launcher provides a vast number of enhancements for your homepages.

    The best of the crop IMO is the ability to save a backup of the Home Pages to anywhere in the world you want to send them to.

    Pinch the home screen inwards top and bottom and the home screen shrinks giving you the widgets at the bottom
