    Favourite settings page and weather/location app missing

    I have only had my Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini for a short while and still feel bewildered by some of the features. I have joined this forum today to see if anyone can help me with an issue that started yesterday. I have tried searching for an answer to the following issue within the forum but without success. Apologies if it has been asked before but help would be appreciated.

    Somehow yesterday I lost the favourite (or is it common) settings page from the Easy Mode Home screen. Today the weather app which is usually at the top of the home screen has disappeared. I can't find a way of restoring these. Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome, Peter! I don't use Easy Mode, so I'm not sure, but I'm sure others who do will come along to give you some suggestions.

    I don't have the setting on my custom ROM, but from what I've read, you should be able to go to settings/device/home screen mode and choose Easy Mode again. That should reset everything... Let us know if that works or not.

    Hi Rosalie
    Thanks for your response. I have tried to switch between easy mode and basic mode (several times). Both of these layouts have lost the weather app which was at the top of the home screen above favourite contacts. Any further help would be appreciated. Peter

    Can you go into your app drawer, scroll over to widgets and re-add your weather widget? That, or long press on your homescreen and add it that way. Are you using the stock weather app/widget?

    Thanks CR6.
    Now sorted. I have been missing the widgets section of the apps collection. I have found the missing items and restored the home screen to previous view. Much appreciated help.

    Great! Yeah, LOL... I've used android for quite a while, so I know the widgets section is there, but there are still numerous things that I am learning about this phone, and it's settings, and I've had the thing for over a year. I'll still not have it all figured out before I get my next phone, most likely
    Have FUN!
