Hi

 

I cannot add or remove apps or widget to homescreen for my new S10. I bought it 1 months back. I could do it for first 2 weeks - after that "Add to homescreen" is disabled and cannot move new widgets too. Please help. Thanks

I did the cache partition as per your instruction - but unfortunately that didn't help. A fix from my collegue helped. Here is what I did - this will help others with the same issue. 

1. In my S10, in one of the empty areas of my homescreen, I pressed to open the widget/wallpaper/themes..etc. screen.

2. Tapped the "Homescreen settings"

3. Turn "Off" the option "Lock Home screen layout"

 

This helped.

Still thanks a lot for all your time. I do appreciate it.

So just to clarify when you long press on an app you are no longer able to add or remove them is that correct?

Correct...I can see the pop up window with the options "Remove from homescreen" or "Add to homescreen"...but everything is greyed out. Thanks for your response.

Have you tried wiping the cache partition on your device?
