How do I get Sony Tips back

I just got a Z4 Tablet and already have a Z phone. A "Sony Tip" showed up on my Z4 Home Screen inviting me to link my two devices. I didn't have my phone to hand and was doing something else so closed the Tip. Would like to do it now but can't find how to bring Sony Tip info back. Anybody know please?

Re: How do I get Sony Tips back

If you are unable to find this specific widget in the list of widgets to add to the home screen you may have to clear data for Xperia Home to get it back. This will reset your home screen back to its default look.

To clear data for Xperia Home, go to Settings > Apps > All > Xperia Home > Clear data.

Hi @SirRobin,

In that case you may need to perform a factory reset of your device in order to trigger this. However, if I am not mistaken it takes you to the same features that is available when you go to Settings > Xperia Connectivity > One-touch setup.
