    let me introduce myself first. Been searching this forums on many topics and its time i joined.

    i know how to move apps from its folder to trash apps drawer in 2 ways, but i can not do it the same way with widgets

    one way is :

    press and hold in trash widgs drawer tab
    select apps
    there i can see the lists of apps , but not widgets
    if i select one app the it will move the app but not its widgest

    other way

    in apps drawer press and hold one app and release it in the home page on top where it said edit.

    that opotion of edit its not showing with widgets only app info

    Its very annoying to have the widgets drawer so full of crap widgets

    thank you

    Most of widgets that you're having problem getting are probably the bloat wears that come with your device. The easiest way to remove them will be to use a tool such as titanium backup.

    Unfortunately you have to be rooted to use titanium, but thanks

    In Nova, if you press the widget, you being it to the homescreen. Instead of a trashcan at the top, you'll see app info. Drop the widget there and it opens Application manager for the widget. Uninstall. Not as simple as press, drag to trash, but not a lot of steps either.

    It open the app manager for the application NOT THE WIDGET, if you press to uninstall then will uninstall the whole app. Try and tested.

    You're right. I learned something. Email the developer. It may not be possible, or it may be something simple we're both overlooking.

    I was under the impression that you couldn't remove a widget unless you removed the app it came with. The widget is an integral part of the app, even if you don't ever use it. If you don't add it to your home screen, what's it hurting by being there?

    One's sense of elegance? You're probably right, though - although I don't write Android apps (yet - I may decide to devote the amount of time it would take to learn the Android environment well), the widget may be a kind of "super-shortcut" to the app. (Although Weather & clock widget doesn't seem to have an app - dropping iy on "info" calls it a widget and has an active uninstall button. So I guess you can write it either way.)

    You can, if you're willing to root.

    Well some apps use excessive amount of widgets, so to go through them is very painful. I use one app which have 17 widgets most of them 4 x 3. I use only one 1 x 1 many times but its very annoying to have them cluttering the draw. I will include a pic sample when i gain the privilages - 3 more post.
