In the past I have "removed" the Google Sear Bar, located on the top of my homescreen.

 

Now, I forgot how I did that.

 

I want to remove it and I know there is a way, but I can't find it in online forums, and I didn't bookmark the page... errrr!

 

I do NOT want to "disable" it, just remove it as I did before....

 

So, if you know how to remove it (not disable) please reply....

 

Thanks

Stacey

Long press on the icon then swipe it to the 'trash' to delete.

Nope, as I cannot. I wish it was as easy as swiping it to the trash, but its not a "widget" its non swipable! Like I said before I don't want to disable the feature, just remove the (i beleive its called and actionbar or something similair) box. I've done it before, i wish I wrote down how I did it...

Something like this maybe?

Settings/ APPS/ ALL/ Google Search/ DISABLE

But if you use voice search it disables that as well. Just advising...
