Date Time Widget position

2021-05-04, 2:42 AM


after some old update on my G5 Plus, the position (Y axis) of the Date Time widget has changed. The Y value has increased so that the widget's position moved down a little bit. The consequence is that I miss 1 line of "icon space". Originally, there was a space for 12 icons on home screen, but now I can place only 10 icons there.

I'm not able to drag'n'drop the widget to put it closer to the Google Search bar. Drag'n'drop iniciates, I move the widget's icon upwards, but the icon settles back once I release the drag'n'drop. The icon's size doesn't change during the drag'n'drop.

BTW, Google Search bar is just another huge vaste of space on home screen. I never use the search bar. Can I remove/hide it? Will there be any side-effect once I hide this system app? Anyone knows the exact name of the app in Czech language/Czech environment?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Streamline


Thanks for writing to us. Sorry to know about this. I will try my best to help you. I would suggest you fill-up the home screen with icons and the widget and show a screenshot. If you feel there is an issue, the only workaround would be to set the display size (Settings > Display > Advanced > Display size) to small, this will make the widget a bit smaller.
