    The Google Search bar has now somehow moved to the middle of my screen and I cannot move it back. How can I fix this.

    Alternatively, a previous Google Search is still "stuck" on the search screen. How can I get rid of this?
    Thanks.

    Don't have the phone yet, but I'm guessing long tap on the google search bar, drag it to wehre you want it, drop it. Also to remove your search, im guessing click in the text box itself, delete your previous search, click out.....again, i don't have the phone, so this is a guess.

    Delete the search bar widget off your screen and then add a new one.

    See if that works

    tab on the edge of it and hold for a few second and you will notice at the bottom of the screen a trash can will show up, this will allow you to then drag it around and if need remove, drag it all the way down

    the google search used to always popup. Anything on the desktop can be removed by a long hold- till the apps menu turns to a red trash can, then drag it there.

    Glad I wasn't the only one with this problem. The long press widget thing worked. The trash can threw me off for a second, it looked like the arrow on the tab

    You can do it. Press the icon until you can move it, then pull it over to the edge of the screen, then slide the icon up and down along the edge, until it moves to the next screen. It doesn't work easily, it took some practice to do it, but it works. I'm hoping the next update will smooth it out.
