Widgets disappeared after moving apps to memory card from phone memory.

Hello guys, my phone is a Samsung Galaxy SM-A750F/DS (A7 model of 2018) running Android-10. Yesterday, to my surprise I discovered that I was able to move from internal memory to external memory, almost all the apps in my phone (roughly 95% at least, of them). I don't know when this ability became possible but it is.

I noticed that all the widgets I had in my home screen disappeared and no longer appeared in the widgets library (to select from) and my guess is that this new ability to free up internal memory space also makes it impossible for widgets for the affected apps (not all) to remain available.

Is there a way around this is or is it a new paradigm in the Android world for ageing phone models/ageing-but-still-kicking versions of Android?

I think if you do a search here, you'll find that storing your apps on an SD card is not advisable. Use removable storage for pics, vids, and docs. Good luck.
