My links that are on my homescreen are grayed out. Just upgraded to the S23 ultra last night. Error says app for this icon not updated. My chrome is updated. Any suggestions?

Welcome to Android Central! I agree, Chrome website shortcuts on the homescreen seem to be prone to instability, especially with major updates to the app or to the system. Bookmarks are much more reliable.

Duplicate threads merged, and I made you the owner of the original guest post to make it easier for you to find.

How do I get the links to them? Is there a way to do a refresh from a backup from Google? I used the Verizon option to transfer my data, I usually do it from Google backup.

I'm not sure that you can. Certain 3rd party launchers (like Nova) allow you to backup your homescreen layout. One UI might do that, but that would presumably backup to your OneDrive (if you had it set up). @mustang7757, do you know if the homescreen layout for One UI can be backed up and restored?

And just to be clear -- you didn't bookmark these sites anywhere else?
