Launcher Backups do not include Web apps or shortcuts from Edge added to the Home screen

Senior Member

When I create shortcuts from Microsoft Edge to the Home screen, (Web apps etc.) Launcher does not include them in my Backups, so when I restore Microsoft Launcher from a backup, any Web shortcuts I added are not restored to the Home screen

Hi, thanks for your feedback. Could you please tell us your launcher version, android version and device model?
I have the same issue. Shortcuts or web pages links do not back up.
Hi, thanks for your feedback. We'll look into it.

@Ann_Yao_680 having the same issue. Shortcuts in Edge don't backup (but shortcuts in Chrome do backup) and direct dial widgets also not backing up. Not sure why. Running stock android 11 and latest launcher update
