How To Change Widgets On Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8 Plus

Want to know how to change the widgets from your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus screen? Many Samsung users are interested in doing so, as they keep installing all kinds of third-party apps and experiencing with their Home screen options.

If you want to make your working screens more personable and better organized, learning how to edit your widgets, with the classic add or remove options, is a good start. It will help you declutter things a little bit and, why not, bring up some other widgets, perhaps even more useful or interesting than the ones you’ve been keeping on your Home screen for so long.

The process is simple, it has the advantage that it works pretty much the same with both widgets and apps or other icons, it can be performed in several different ways and, again, it works pretty much the same with both Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

Let’s take a closer look at the two main options:
