    Default Is it possible to delete widget screen?

    Bought the new tab pro 8.4 for my wife and am setting it up. She doesn't like the widget page that comes automatically on the tablet. I know we can customize it but she'd prefer it just be gone. Help!!!!

    Welcome to Android Central! I doubt you can get rid of that page without rooting the device and flashing a custom ROM. Just curious, though--why exactly is it so bothersome? Doesn't it only come up when you access it? Wouldn't it otherwise be out of sight, out of mind?

    I'm pretty sure if you download another launcher (Nova, Google Now, Apex) you can put any widget you want on the home screen

    Yes, download Nova and not only will you get rid of the annoying and useless widget page but you'll also fall in love with your tab all over again!

    It's only available for Nexus and Google Play Edition devices: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...droid.launcher

    I side-loaded the Google Launcher and it has greatly improved the smoothness of my Glaxay Tab Pro.

    Just like when you close your bedroom door behind which you left a huge mess. Out of sight, out of mind, right?
    Some of us like organizing. And the widget thing is just a purposeless mess.
