Sometimes when browsing websites, instead of saving a bookmark, I'll add a shortcut to my home page. I've now accumulated 24-pages of these shortcuts. I'm trying to clean up my phone now and would like to back them up. Anyone know what directory they're stored in?Screenshot_20230124-222306_One%20UI%20Home.jpg

Welcome to Android Central! Homescreen shortcuts aren't saved in a directory, like in Windows. They're just part of the launcher's data. Assuming you're using the stock One UI launcher, I'm not sure if there's a way to back them up -- let me see if @mustang7757 has any ideas.

Certain 3rd party launchers like Nova have an option to backup and restore the layout, so in the future, you may want to consider one of those.

I never had that many shortcuts maybe 1 or 2 max and when i made a back up through Samsung cloud or Smart Switch on pc for home screen set-up they would come back
