    Not sure if this is just me pressing and deleting icons, or whether my desire is doing this itself, but I have noticed on a number of occasions, that icons seem to have dissapeared, the problem is I can't remember what I had in the blank space (probably means I did not need it!)

    Anyone else had this?

    Interesting, I had this with the icon for the "News" app on my homescreen, I just thought it was a one-off.

    Sometimes an update to an app results in the icon or widget disappearing and needing to be re added.

    When you have got all your icons and stuff where you want them why don't you just save the 'scene'.
    Then if you accidentally delete one and can't remember what or where it was, just reselect the scene you save.
