    Good day to everyone here at Droidforums. I am pretty new to forums and I am a new smartphone user. I am enjoying the smartphone experience but finding frequent frustrations. My new Droid x2 is sweet but challenging me regularly. My current problem is in using Widgets. I loaded 4 of them on to my home page and then wanted to get rid of one of the four. I couldn't figure out how to remove one of the four as they all moved in a block. So I pulled the four up to the trash can. They were gone. My problem is that when I went back to the the widgets folders some of the previously installed and then trashed widgets were no longer available to me in the folders. Can anyone tell me what I can do? Also I suspect I may have posted this in another location separate from this introduction discussion. Please advise and I will be happy to try and follow proper procedures. Thanks much

    Welcome to DroidForums!! Happy you joined up :)

    It looks like you did not post this anywhere else so you are good there. And unless you manually uninstalled the app that controls the widget then it is still there. Just removing it from the screen does not uninstall it. Maybe if you tell me what the widget was or what it did, I will know what it is called.

    Yes, Thank you. I installed four widgets just playing around to see how they worked. I am embarrassed to say I can only remember one of the four. It was wikipedia. That one now does not appear in either of my widget folders. I have already learned from this experience to make notes when playing around with this phone.

    Is wikipedia the one you want back? And did you need to install an app to be able to get it or was it on the phone when you bought it? Sorry but I am not familiar with what is stock on the X2.

    It was one of the widgets that came with the phone. I don't even care to have it back but I was just wondering why it disappeared from the folder is all. I really appreciate your answering me. I guess I should move on and not worry about. I don't want to waster your time on this matter but do appreciate your efforts. Thanks
