    In the process of setting up my new Moto 7, I set 4 contacts to display on my home screen. All 4 of them have a small "contacts" icon in their lower right quadrant. On my old Moto 5g+, one of the contacts has the little icon overlay, but the other 3 don't. What does the overlay mean, and can I get rid of it?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! The contact icon is standard for Direct Dial widgets on the homescreen. On your older G5 Plus, do you remember if you were using Direct Dial/Contact widgets for each of those homescreen shortcuts?

    OK, logged in. I have no idea if I used Direct Dial widgets on the G5. But on the G7, I jest went into the contact and selected the "add to home screen" option. Is there another way to get them on the home screen without the needless overlay?

    Thanks,

    When you long press the contact does it give more options ?

    No. Tried from the home screen icon and from within contacts.

    Maybe that overlay was a favorite in contact?

    No, turned off "favorite" designation, restarted phone, still see the overlay icon. :-(
