    I have the phone dialer set as my left side shortcut on my lock screen, but every time I open it, it keeps opening to the keypad even though I have set it to "open to last viewed" screen. If I open the phone dialer from the apps list it opens to the recent calls screen, but doesn't when I open it from the lock screen. How do I get it to open to recent calls screen using the shortcut on the lock screen?

    Unfortunately they're separate things. The shortcut on the lockscreen is direct to the dialer (not the Phone app).

    Weird that it still has the option to open to last viewed screen, even though it doesn't work.

    You mean the phone app you have as a shortcut on lock screen ?

    That's for the app itself. The shortcut in the lockscreen is not for the app, it is a shortcut straight to the dialer (bypassing any app options, because you're telling it to open the dialer directly).
