    What problem are you having you are kinda vague above, some widgets are pretty large and take up 25% to 50% of the screen, I would first try removing all apps except for maybe 4 at the bottom and then see if you can put it on the page

    Did you remove the widget from your home screen, before you uninstalled it? It might be possible the widget didn't uninstall cleanly. Is the widget icon still on the screen? If it is remove it. Maybe install the widget and remove it again? This time removing the widget from the screen?

    Just throwing out ideas. You aren't giving us much detail to work with.

    If you uninstalled and the widget was still on your home screen then the 'widget' trying to load won't have the app to call upon for resources. Long press on the error-ed widget and drag it to the trash.

    Have you tried a reboot?

    If the widget icon is still on your screen, long click on it and drag it down to trash.

    If it's not on your screen, install the widget again. Once you have the widget back on your home screen, long click and drag it down to trash. Then uninstall the widget.

    That's what I would try, YMMV. :)

    Thanks everyone.

    I long press (press and hold) on the icon and then 'drag' it to the app drawer and wait for it to turn into a trash can then drop.
