    Samsung Galaxy Tab A ... following system update to Android 11. Every time I closedown and then start the tablet again apps shortcuts and folders disappear. Not always the same shortcuts, but does happen.
    Happens on home and app screen.
    Some apps shortcuts also disappear when the app has been moved to SDcard storage and the app is subject to an update, this usually reinstalls the app in internal storage.
    Home Screen shortcuts will disappear even when the "lock home screen" setting is activated.
    Using supplied app launcher, no system mods or rooting, just standard supplied o/s, so problem is in Android 11.
    Is there any way to prevent this happening so I don't have to keep rebuilding my shortcuts folders please?

    Welcome to Android Central! Just to be clear -- are all of the app shortcuts that disappear related to apps that have been moved to SD card, or only some of them?

    Try clearing the cache partition: https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...g-galaxy-tab-a

    OP mentioned "using supplied app launcher," so presumably One UI.
