    Dear friend,
    Adding and removing widgets on Xperia Home screen is pretty simple.Widgets at times are very useful and at times are over crowding to use.They also consume more battery juice as well as the system memory making your droid phone to lag at times.To remove widgets from Xperia home screen all you need to do is long press on a widget and then you will see a dustbin icon appearing below,between Contacts and messaging dock.Just drag that widget to the dustbin icon and it will remove that unwanted widget.
    Regards,
    Arvind

    Re: Unable to remove widget shortcut icons from Xperia Home screen

    Dear..

    Widget are the things that help you often and you can use them frequently because you can place them at your home screen bu the thing is that some time the widgets create irritation as we do not use it sometimes and it starts interrupting the regular work that we are doing as well. It also gives us a feeling of less space at the home screen so i advice you to only place those widgets which you are using frequently.

    Now if you want to remove your widgets then you have to follow these steps :-

    1. Just bring up the widget from the bar to the main screen.
    2. Open the widget and after that tap it and do not remove your finger until you get a cross or "X" sign.
    3. Once you get that sign just press that and your widget will be removed.

    Hope it will work perfectly for you

    Cheers...!!!
