Problems adding widgets

2015-01-16, 17:05 PM

Hello all. I've just bought a Moto E and am trying to work out how to add widgets to my home screens.  The advice here and at other sites suggests I should long press the screen and then select 'widgets' from the three options that appear.  Problem is that when I long press I simply get a window asking me if I want to change the wallpaper, no sign of any widget option.  Where am I going wrong? As I say it's a brand new Moto E running Android 4.4.4. Very grateful for any help with this.  Andrew

What happens if you try this:



Go into the app drawer and scroll to the widget section.  Find the widget you want and press and hold it.  This should allow you to slide the widget to a screen.



Let us know if this helps.

If you are using Google Now Launcher then long press will give you the widget option. If are using stock launcher then in the app drawer on the upper side there will be a widget tab.

Hope this will solve your problem.

Ah many thanks all, missed the separate app drawer for widgets - my old HTC phone was on an earlier version which threw me.  Perhaps I need to upgrade ?
