Adding Widgets to Your Home Screens

Some applications that you install come with widgets that you can place on your Home screens. These widgets normally display real-time information, such as stocks, weather, time, and Facebook feeds. Your HTC One also comes preinstalled with some widgets. Here is how to add and manage widgets.

Adding a Widget

Your HTC One should come pre-installed with some widgets, but you might also have some extra ones that have been added when you installed other applications. Here is how to add those widgets to your Home screens.

  1. Touch and hold in an open area on your Home screen.

  2. Touch the drop-down menu and choose Widgets.
  3. Touch and hold a widget to select it. Keep holding the widget as you move to step 4. In this example, we are using the Calendar widget.

  4. Drag the widget to the Home screen panel you want to place it on.

  5. Drag the widget to where you want to position it on the Home screen panel.

  6. Release your finger to place the widget. Some widgets ask you a few questions after they are positioned.

Edit or Move a Widget

Sometimes you want to remove a widget or edit its configuration. Here is how:

  1. Touch and hold the widget until you see a blue shadow, but continue to hold the widget.
  2. Drag the widget to the word Remove to remove it.
  3. Drag the widget to the word Edit to change the widget’s settings.

  4. Release the widget.
