    recovering shortcut from trash

    hi there folks (I read the only other post I found with search, but it doesn't solve my situation). I was cleaning up my home screen and trashed a browser icon, a nano second after I had done that I realised it had trashed 2 shortcuts associated/linked to that icon. Namely my login to main business app and a link to a BigPond acct webpage.

    the important one is the bus app login.

    How do you access the trash folder to hopefully recover the shortcut.

    cheers

    Welcom to the forum. There is no trash folder. You'll have to create a new shortcut. Which one did you delete, the browser widget with the bookmarks?

    thanks for quick response. Umm it was a "world icon" that I assumed was just another browser icon. As I was moving it to trash I noticed - too late that it also dragged my login window with it. This would have been set up by the administrator. Opps I may have to go cap in hand and get it reset.

    Okay. Long press on the screen. When the add menu pops up, press Widgets, then scroll over till you see bookmarks and press that.

    Panic over... the login has returned - found lurking in a secondary screen. May have been resent by server during a sync?

    All is well.

    Good to hear. It would have still been in you bookmarks when you opened the browser, what you thought you deleted was basically just a shortcut to your bookmarks.
