How to Add Widgets to the Samsung Galaxy Tab Home Screen

A widget works like a tiny, interactive or informative window, often providing a gateway into another app on the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Just as you can add your favorite apps to the Home screen, you can also add your favorite widgets.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab comes with a smattering of widgets preaffixed to the Home screen, possibly just to show you how they can be used. You can place even more widgets on the Home screen by following these steps:

  1. Touch the Customize icon button on the Home screen.

  2. Choose Widgets.

  3. Scroll the list to find the widget you want to add.

  4. Drag the widget to a Home screen panel.

    The widget is plopped on the Home screen.

The variety of available widgets depends on the applications you have installed. Some applications come with widgets, some don’t. Some widgets come independently of any application.

  • More widgets are available at the Android Market.

  • You cannot install a widget when the Home screen has no room for it. Choose another panel or remove icons or widgets to make room.
