    Add button doesn't work

    Hi. I'm a new user and not understanding some of the features. I'm trying to add a widget. I go to the Home screen, which had 8 icons, hold the menu button down and see 5 gray icons: Add, Wallpaper, Search, Notifications and Settings. When I tap any except Add, I get submenus. Add doesn't do anything. Would appreciate any help you can provide.

    One of those options should say Widget, if not I can't help...Bump for ya
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    I don't see a widgets option. I thought I followed procedure I saw on two separate threads. It's as if the Add button is not activated.

    Holding down the Menu button only delays the display of the menu. You have to long-press on a blank spot of the home screen itself (Where you normally drag the icons).
    Also, keep in mind, that not all widgets take up the same screen real estate, and most don't tell you how big they are, so if you get an error about not enough space, try to clear up a 3x3 spot on the screen, as most widgets fall within that size somehow.
    HTC Rezound... Stock for now, with the Tag Home launcher...

    If your screen is full, the add button will be grayed out.

    8 Icons shouldn't fill up the screen if they're all 1x1 (i.e. app icons).

    If the screen isn't full, pressing Add after hitting Menu key should bring up a sub menu which lists shortcuts, widgets, folders, wallpapers (basically, hitting Add from Menu is similar to long pressing on a blank portion of any home screen).

    Thanks Fun4lo, Taegost and JCo352. Starting to understand that size does matter, at least with icons. Was able to make more space and activate Add button. It takes some practice to know how long to hold down buttons, et. al. I do like the Droid and will like it even more as I get to know it.

    You never need to long press Menu. It's only activated by a single "press". Only Home and Search have alternate functionality between a single press and a long press. For Home, long press brings up the task switcher, for Search, it activates voice search.
