    Remove unwanted picture from the 3rd Screen?

    I was just playing around with my new Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100). On the third screen where you have Yahoo Finance, there's an image/picture box that says something like "Tap to change picture" (not quite certain of the exact text now). When I tapped on it my picture folder openned and I just selected a picture to see what happens. Somehow the picture is clearly the wrong one in every way and there appears to be no way of changing or removing it or restoring the screen to its initial setting.

    Could someone please guide me? Thanks in advance.

    So, I have succeeded in removing the both the offending picture and (saddly) the picture box by dragging the picture box out of the way (I can't even recollect correctly how I did it: SGS II isquite complicated I must admit).

    Anyway, is there anyway of restoring the picture box? Secondly, is their any folder where such removed items/pictures are stored?

    To get the picture frame back long press on the screen where it was or on any other home screen. Select Widget and then scroll over until you see Picture Frame. Select it and your gallery will open. You then touch whichever pictures you want to get get the green check mark next to them. After selecting the ones you want press OK. To make the widget bigger or skinnier long press on the widget without moving it around then let go and you will see some yellow bars appear. Drag the bars around to adjust the size and shape.

    Thanks Ollie. Somehow, I just can't put an empty picture frame back on the screen in order to restore that screen to its original look. But you've given a useful tip about adding widgets. Tnks.

    You may have to add another screen. If there isn't enough room for the widget it won't work. To add another screen simply pinch your fingers together very quickly on any home screen and it will expand to show all of your screens. You will see one with a plus sign on it. Touch it and it will add another empty home screen where you can then add your picture frame widget.

    You can also rearrange all of your screens that way by moving them around while they are all expanded instead of moving shortcuts and widgets one by one.

    On ADW (don't know about the stock launcher) if you press the menu button and then select "edit" you'll get the same add/remove screen.

    Yes, it is the same. It is also a way to add shortcuts, widgets, and wallpapers if you select Add instead of Edit.
