How Do I Restore a Deleted Shortcut?

2010-09-06, 15:49 PM

There was a pre-installed "Recent Calls" shortcut on one of the home screens (first one to the right of the main home screen). I wanted to move it to the main home screen, so I deleted it, expecting to be able to pick it and set it where I wanted. But it's gone from all the pick lists, whether Shortcuts or Moto or Android widgets. Where can I find it again? Have rebooted and it's still not there.

Sorry about that.  I should have added that you need to go into shortcuts to get to the Dialer.  So, long tap the home screen then tap Shortcuts->Dialer->Recent Calls List.  Again, sorry for the confusion.  I will edit the previous post to reflect this.  Hope this helps.

They want you to dig for this one.  Long tap the home screen then tap Shortcuts->Dialer->Recent Calls List.  That should put the shortcut back on your home screen.  If you want to move an icon from one screen to the next just long tap on it and drag it to the edge of the screen in the direction you want to move it.  Don't let it go until you get to the screen you want to move it to.  It seems like you need to drag your finger until it actually hits the phone case.  It can take some getting use to, but works pretty good once you get the hang of it.  Hope this helps.

Well...

A long press on my home screen brings up: "Add to Home Screen: Moto Widgets, Android Widgets, Shortcuts, Folders and Wallpapers."

No Dialer->Recent Calls List.

Where did I go wrong?

Edit:

Found it! Had to go Shortcuts->Dialer->Recent Calls.  Thanks! It was digging for it ;-)
