So I've just got a Nexus 4 (hooray for me!) and I don't know how I did it, but I've somehow got an analog clock perched over my Google search bar. I don't want it there.

It doesn't appear to be a widget - I can't just hold and drag it and remove it, and it's constant across each page.

How do I remove it / how did I put it there??

  • Have you checked that it's not a Live Wallpaper? Try choosing a different wallpaper and see if the clock is gone. Commented Mar 20, 2013 at 11:09
  • Yeah I've just got a standard wallpaper selected... Commented Mar 20, 2013 at 11:16

Go to settings-->apps-->clear data& cache of launcher(I think it is trebuchet ).

  • Thanks! That sorted it. Any idea why/how it got there in the first place? Commented Mar 20, 2013 at 11:44
  • May be it was a bug.

I've had this happen to me before and a reboot was enough to fix it.
