Personalizing Your Home Screen: Widgets

Widgets put at-a-glance important information and media content up front on your Home screen. A wide selection of widgets is available, such as Bookmarks, Calendar, Messages, Music, Photo album, Twitter, and more.

Some of the widgets are already added to your Home screen for your convenience. You can rearrange, remove, or add more widgets as you please.

Adding a widget

  1. If you are not on the Home screen, press HOME.
  2. Tap the + button on the lower-right corner of the Home screen.
  3. In the Add to Home options menu, tap HTC widget. (You can also select Android widget.)
  4. Tap to select a widget from the list of HTC widgets.
  5. Most HTC widgets are available in a variety of designs and sizes to suit your needs. Tap the right or left arrow button at the bottom of the screen to view the different styles and choose one.
