    I was wondering if there's a way to see my underlying wallpaper without any icons, even if temporary. What triggered this was I just installed the Jan update. When it reboot/restarted, my wallpaper remained uncluttered for a brief period without any icons impeding the view. Is there a way to purposely accomplish this?

    Thanks in advance

    You can use a 3rd party launcher and set one page as home for just wallpaper no icons or pixel search bar

    Wallpaper Saver will save just the wallpaper as a picture file.

    I use Nova Launcher with Glass Pack free Icon pack. The Icons are transparent to a certain extent . Depending on the wallpaper you can barely see them.

    This screen shot will give you an example .

    You can get most of the way there with stock launcher.

    Set up a clear widget on a separate page (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...hl=en_US&pli=1 - has no functionality, just allows creation of a blank widget). This would clear all but the 'permanent' row of 5, which you could also leave empty if you wanted, leaving only the google search bar.

    Leaves you something like this:

    I had been using BLANK widgets to maintain spacing on other pages but did not think of doing it for an entire page. I will settle for most of the page - eliminating the five "handy" ones might be going too far.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
