    I assume you've tried re-starting the phone?

    Yes mate and it makes no difference on my 'home' screen if I move a widget to a different position it just leave a duplicate of it's usual spot. The removal of widgets is also complicated now too in that you need to (if you can) move it to another panel and then remove it from there but the original stays put.
    I think the update has really messed up what is the best phone I have had. I" ll have to ask my son to have a look at it as he is a bit more savvy than me.

    I don't mean to be this way but aren't you at the wrong kind of forum for this question? Wouldn't a Pixel forum help you?

    If you click on Settings and near the bottom, click on "About phone" you will see Android version.

    It's build 11 but my problem is now it has a mind of it's own by not letting me delete widgets from my home screen apart from the ones I want or even generally move them around.

    That help centre I cannot find any way to register either .

    Is your home screen locked?

    Long press an empty area to get 'Preferences' then see if home screen is locked.
