    My neighbor has a new S6. Every couple of weeks she asks me to fix her phone. Icons are moved from Home screen to 2nd screen. Weather widget is gone from Home screen.

    Is there a way to lock the format so icons can't be moved, deleted, etc?

    Not sure with touch wiz, but every other launcher I've ever used usually has this feature. I'm sure someone will chime in soon. When I was using a second screen before I settled on just one if I pressed to long and moved my finger a fraction of a millimeter it (icon) would go to the next screen so maybe that is what she is doing. She come from iPhone?

    My dad does this and is user error! Lol. He accidentally removes widgets, removes icons, adds homescreen, etc. I airways have to fix it. Besides adding a launcher to lock it down, there's no solution.

    My mother is the exact same with her Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini.

    I will try to school her on finger usage and look into other launchers. She came from a S4. Before that was a BlackBerry.
