    Hi,
    I just bought a Moto G6 play and it's great but for one thing - when I try to create a website shortcut to the home screen in the usual way I get the message saying a shortcut has been sent to my home screen, but there is nothing there. Also when I install a new app it does not put an icon on the home screen.
    My browser is Chrome and I use Solo Launcher. Ive never had this trouble with previous Moto G phones.
    Any suggestions would be welcome. I've been going through settings for hours to no avail!
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Is Solo Launcher a 3rd Party launcher or what Moto call their own launcher?

    If a 3rd Party launcher, does it have the required permissions? If you switch to the stock launcher, do you see a list of shortcuts you've created (I wonder if it's putting them there as opposed to your Solo homescreen)?

    Solo is a third party Launcher. The stock Launcher is Moto Launcher. I've tried creating shortcuts when using Moto Launcher and still no shortcuts.
    I've had a look at app permissions with both launchers and can't find anything that changes things, and have also checked the settings of Chrome. I'm nit a great tech person and I'm at a loss to think of anything else

    Do you have more than one home screen?
    Have you tried nova launcher?

    I've just discovered that Solo Launcher was the culprit after all. I uninstalled it and was able to create shortcuts. I don't know why this happened. What a pity as I've used it on other devices and had no trouble. I'll keep Nova in mind. Thank you for your help!
