    Icons missing from home screen

    Hi - I have an Acer A3-A30 tablet and am having problems with missing shortcuts on the main home screen.

    I was running low on space on this tablet so decided to move quite a few apps and games onto my SD card through my normal settings / apps screen.

    The seemed to work and I recovered quite a bit of space back.

    However, now I find that any time I reboot then any app I have moved has its shortcut missing off the homescreens - i.e. main homescreen as well as well as those accessed by swiping left or right

    On checking the apps through the settings / apps screen again I have found that the moved apps have all got new names with the little green android robot as their icon.

    However when I look at the main apps / widgets list the original icons are still there and still start the games ok.

    So what I did try was to copy each of these missing icons back onto the homescreen and they all then worked ok as before.

    BUT when I reboot the tablet the icons disappear again (!!!???)

    So how can I get these icons to stay on the homescreen - I assume this is something to do with the fact that the apps have been renamed but I haven't a clue how to fix this.
