    You will have to press and hold the icon or widget that you wish to remove from your android device. After a few seconds, you can see that the phone starts vibrating. At the bottom you will see an option that denotes Remove. While holding the icon or widget, you will have to drag it towards the remove button. Once the remove button turns red, just drop the item and the icon or widget chosen by you will be removed.

    Hi there,

    If you want to remove the WIDGETS and ICONS from the HOME SCREEN of your ANDROID device then,
    keep your tap over the widget or icon you want to remove for about 2 seconds.

    Doing this only the selected icon or widget will become active and the other things in the screen will become inactive.
    Then drag the selected widget or icon to the REMOVE button (a dustbin like icon) at the bottom of the screen and its done....

    Hope it helps!!!

    regards!!!
