    I did the newest update from AT&T this morning on my Samsung Galaxy S4 and the widgets I had installed are gone. The widgets tab in the app drawer is no longer there, either. How do I get my widgets back?

    Welcome to Android Central.

    Have you tried long-pressing a blank area of home screen to access your widget locker?

    I tried this and found the widgets, but it won't let me place any on my home screen.

    Widgets locker is accessible by using the motion of adding another page. Does it make sense what I just said? I hope so. If not it's the motion like popping a giant pimple.

    It's easy to get them back. Either touch and hold your finger on any blank space or hit the setting on left of the home button. By doing both will take your to the next screen, showing pages on top and 3 icons (Wallpapers, Widgets, Home screen Setting) at the bottom. Hit the WIDGET icon and you'll be in widgets window. Now you can chose any widget to place on the screen by by holding it down. Good luck.

    Touch and hold home screen. Options will appear at the bottom, the middle one being widgets.

    Pull down the notification shade and there is a gear icon, top right. That is the settings.

    No worries. Download "Action Widgets" free from the app store.

    Your widgets can be accessed at your home page. Just go there and "pinch" the page they are at the bottom of the page.

    The changes have brought the S4 up to the same process as S6. Pinch the home screen. Widgets option appears at the Base of the screen. You can select and add widgets to screens as usual from there. There are other changes too. If you get stuck look at some of the S6 queries and solutions as well as those for S4.

    All my widgets are missing from the widget screen that I use to drag them onto any of my pages. Every one of them. When I click the widgets icon, it's just a blank screen.

    I have exactly the same problem on my S9! I do still have a few widgets that continue to work, but no list, and no apparent way to install a new widget!
