If you accidentally removed the clock/weather widget on your primary home screen, here’s how to get it back:
- Pinch your fingers together on the primary home screen to switch to Edit mode.
- Tap Widgets.
- Find and tap Clock, and then select the 4 x 2 Clock widget.
- Tap the Home button to exit the Edit mode.
Note: The steps here were written for a Xiaomi device running MIUI V5. If you’re having a different version of MIUI, there’s a possibility that the steps and screenshots will be different.
I have a problem. I don’t know why but I was able to get the clock with the date and everything but it doesn’t show the weather, and it leaves the bottom part empty. Is there any way or setting to get the weather feature back?
Make sure you select the Weather clock widget instead of the Clock 4 x 2 widget.

Hi, I tried as per your instruction but not happening to get back digital clock on home screen. May be this procedure is for other model. Pl tell me for Redmi 2.
While the screen might not be exactly the same, the steps should still work for your Redmi 2 running MIUI 6.
Zoom in or out then, that’s it 🙂

Hey, I have bought a new redmi 2… then i installed a theme called “art”. but now i cannot get rid of it..!! there is no local tab in the theme store and neither there is any delete option when i’m scrolling as discussed in many forums. I cant un-istall or delete it. is there any other way?
This guide was written for Xiaomi devices running MIUI V5. Redmi 2 should be running MIUI 6 out of the box. Kindly read MIUI 6: How to change themes on your Xiaomi phone for your answer

I have accidentally deleted messaging icon from the bottom tray of my home screen. I have checked in the settings-apps-running and it shows it is running but i could not find App icon in any of the menu so that I can drag it to home screen/ bottom tray. How can i create an icon of messaging app on the home screen
As far as I know one can’t really delete a system/default app unless your phone is rooted. Check out this thread. It seems like you need to do a factory reset to get back the Messaging app.
Thanks for the post it works amazingly. I actually faced the same issue and posted the problem on a different post and thankfully found it after browsing 1 day. Thanks again!! It really helps!!
It helped me, thank for sharing….

I have accidentally erase the clock/weather widgets in my home screen. I wanted to put them back again but in editing my home screen, i don’t see a clock widget on the bottom section of the editor. My unit is a Redmi 1s just bought 2 weeks ago.
I only own a Redmi, and the above steps are verified and still valid using the latest firmware.
Take note: Once you’re in the home screen Edit mode, tap Widgets and then flick left to look for Clock.
Thanks, the above process works on my Redmi
