Widgets are basically miniature applications that run on your phone’s home screen, displaying information so that you don’t have to dip into the weather app just to see the temperature or see the next calendar appointment.

However, if you get sick of a widget on your Android device and want to remove it, it’s quick and painless. The steps that we are mentioning below will definitely help you out to get rid of the widgets.


  1. Long-press the widget you want to delete.
  2. Tap Remove or the X.
  3. If you don’t see that option, drag and drop the widget to the top of the screen, where a trash can should appear.
  4. Finally, you have removed the widget!

These above-mentioned steps might be slightly different as per your smartphone brand or Android version that currently running on your device. Overall, the basic method of removing widgets is just like this only.
