Where is the app icon


I have several apps on my phone that show the Android icon, not the icon delivered with the app. How can I restore the correct icon? I have a Moto G.


I seen this happen on phones after a major OS update the solution is to remove the app shortcut on the home screen and reinsert it from the app drawer

to remove it from the home screen just press and hold the app icon and then drag it to the X or remove near the top of the screen

to add an app shortcut back to the home screen open the app drawer find the app and press and hold until the home screen pop up and drag it where you want


This may be as good a time as any to mention this new Republic document: How To Open the Android App Drawer. Things are changing in some parts of the Android world.


That did the trick, thanks for both the replies.
