Deleting Widget from Android Emulator’s Home screen

There are 2 approaches:

  • Delete widget from emulator/device
  • Delete widget from Home screen

I will explain second, how to delete widget from Home screen.

It will not the code snippet, it will use case.

There are 2 steps:

  1. Tap widget and hold your finger down. You will notice that the “slider” that normally brings up all of your installed programs turns into a “Trash can”.
  2. Drag the widget to that “Trash can”. Both the widget and the “Trash can” will turn red. At this point, let go of the widget (release your finger). That will “drop” it in the trash.

Note: this does not actually uninstall the widget. It just removes it from your Home screen.

That’s all. The widget has been removed from your Home screen.

Changing Android Emulator’s orientation

It’s important to test your application on different layout orientations and also on different screen sizes.

I am going to show how to change your emulator orientation.

The solution is next:

Switch to previous layout orientation (for example, portrait, landscape) - KEYPAD_7 or Ctrl-F11
Switch to next layout orientation (for example, portrait, landscape) - KEYPAD_9 or Ctrl-F12

Note:

If you prefer to use KEYPAD_7 or KEYPAD_9 you need to turn off your Num Lock.

As you see it is very easy.
