    one of my apps's (ES file explorer) icon disappeared from the apps page. it's still installed because I can get to it from Market and instead of offering me the "install" link it offers "open" and "uninstall."

    anyone know how to fix this, other than uninstalling and reinstalling?

    thanks

    I'm pretty sure you have mentioned the only option available. The only other thing you could try (and I really don't think it will help) is to pull battery and hold power button for 30 seconds.

    I've seen this from time to time. Usually a quick reboot, or restarting your launcher solves the problem. The launcher isn't updating the contents of the app drawer properly.
