Hi. My issue is shortcuts in general. When I updated to Oreo, all of my Firefox shortcuts on my home screen disappeared. Now, I can't add ANY shortcuts from any app to my homescreen. All of my icons are customized using Icon Changer and it's no longer working either. I actually have several apps to change icons and I've just tried them all to no avail. Being able to customize my phone or NOT being able to customize my phone is a deal breaker for me. I used to have a Xiaomi phone and I could customize everything. I guess I'm going back to them. Samsung or Google just cut my phone off at the knees. It's one of the most important features for me and something I used several times a day. Has anyone else had this experience? I'm going to take a wild guess and day this problem extends to my secure folder as well. I wish I'd never updated.
Prior to Oreo you could also create shortcuts using an Activity and an app like More Shortcuts, but that no longer seems to work either. Is there possibly a workaround using this approach available in Oreo? I imagine there's something since notifications can still open apps in Secure Folder.
To get the Knox folder app shortcuts to your Home screen, try this:
I hope this helps?
After tapping onto Workspace settings in the menu, you should see the following screen with Workspace style as the first option (at least I can see it).
You can then slide off the Hide Workspace apps option to create the app shortcut icons.
The result is something like this on your app screen:
And then you can move it to your home screen and add where ever.
If you don't see the options then maybe it's a config thing?
Hope the pictures help.
