    Because the widget is tied to the file location of the app. You are moving the directory structure, so the widget breaks since it's looking for files in the old location.

    Thank you for the explanation.

    I also lost the ability to re-add the widgets and/or shortcuts since dont appear on the menu anymore. Any way to fix this?

    When installing apps I do not see an option to "install to SD" to avoid this issue.

    using non-rooted Casio Commando.

    Please advise if any.

    Regards,
