How delete unwanted widgets?
« on: July 26, 2012, 02:13:50 PM »
When I go to All Apps, Widgets there are now a whole mess of useless, unecessary widgets, which seem to be associated with apps I have installed. Is it possible to delete these? When I press and hold it only allows me to move them to a home screen but not to delete??

I don't think you can, unless you delete the app they're associated with.

Did you find an answer to your question?  I have the same problem. 
Thankyou

A widget is a feature that is built into the app. The available widgets that you are seeing are links to the widget feature, so they can only be removed by removing the app. BTW, you would not gain much at all by removing the link to the widget.

Open the app and check the settings section.  Sometimes, the developer gives you the option on whether or not to use a widget.
I used to be crazy until I found out that insane pays more.

Where am I?  What am I doing in this handbasket?

Widgets cannot be removed from the app draw but if you use a 3rd party Launcher like Nova Launcher Prime you can choose to hide the widgets tab in the app draw.
