Tap and hold the main screen then click widgets and look for Google it should be there so click and drag it where you want it. That's what I did

Transparent Google Search bar has gone!

I recently managed to remove the transparent Google search bar from my Xperia Z2 and nothing will put it back!

Please do not suggest deleting the data for the Xperia Home app, as that just resets the screen icons and does not restore the search bar I am talking about.

Please do not suggest adding the search bar widget - it is not that search bar, it's the clear one that comes pre-assigned to the top of every screen that I have somehow removed.

Please don't suggest a different launcher either as I've tried that, and the search bar is not there for any other launcher to display - it's simply gone!

Short of performing a factory reset is there any way to put things back as they were?

Looking around the internet has drawn a blank and this help forum looks moribund. Probably going to have to waste some time resetting the phone...
