    The clock and weather widget disappeared from the home screen. I tried downloading another one from the playstore, but it won't appear on the homescreen. The icon for it is there, but not the actual clock and weather. How can I get back the original, installed widget? Thanks for any help. I am a Samsung newbie and tech deficient grandmother. Please consider this when replying. I need lots of step-by-step guidance.

    Welcome to Android Central!

    1. Press and hold any empty part of a homescreen.
    2. When options appear, tap Widgets.
    3. Scroll through your Widgets list until you find the clock/weather widget.
    4. Press and hold that widget until you can move it, then drag it to the homescreen where you'd like it to be.

    if you are on Android 6 you can't have that on the lock screen. one option is to install Good Lock from Samsung app store and that will allow you to show widgets on lock screen.

    I deleted the app not realizing it would remove the widget. I installed ap but the widget didn't show up. Any way to get the widget back?

    I think the weather app.is Disabled.

    So following this:

    Sittings>general>application Manager
    You well see many sections, sliding to the laste one (Disabled),
    if you find it there open it and click on Enable.

    Your solution does NOTHING to address the issue of "NO 'Clock / Weather' WIDGET BEING AVAILABLE" within the "AVAILABLE widgets"!!!!!!!

    My actual widget or app has disappeared. Is there a built in Samsung app for clock and weather?
    I've looked a few times. Think I'm going crazy. Happened before and I fixed. This time phone hung and I rebooted it.

    on my S4
    when I open my widget list there is no longer a widget for alarm clock. I can add an "alarm" widget to the home page. When I open this all my previous alarms are listed. Can't find the default widget online.

    There's more to this problem than just a disappearing widget. No matter how many times I add the clock/weather widget back to the screen, it disappears again. When I go to add it back, a number of odd behaviors are observed.
    1. The case of the disappearing off into the nonexistent zone.`
    This happens when I select a new screen and tap the widget.
    You see the widget appear to launch off the widget list to the screen but it doesn't land on the screen, it appears to land outside of the top of the screen and if there was more space on the screen, I'd scroll up and expect to see it. This is very odd and you'd have to see me do it to believe it.
    2. The case of "not enough room"
    This happens after the phantom add described in step 1. I attempt to add the same widget or a different time widget to the same "apparently" empty screen and I get a not enough room error.

    Something is hiding on my screen and taking up space. If I press in the same 'apparently" blank screen, I get a design frame object (it's a green, square outline with a diamond on each edge to grab and expand the frame.
    If I let go, the frame is no longer visible. However, I long press the "apparently" blank screen and move my finger to the top of the screen where I can dump this frame into the trash can (even though I can't see the frame).

    Developer mode is not enabled.
