How to Backup & Restore Home Screen Content (Widgets, Shortcuts) on LG G Pro 2

When you have a high-end smartphone in your hands, there’s a lot of customization you can do and might do, to make it look better and be more productive than what a smartphone actually is. The LG G Pro 2 having a large 5.9-inch display has a wide screen real estate and there is a lot you can have on your home screen, where widgets, shortcuts, app icons can take their place based on the need of the user.

There are multiple home screens available on the LG G Pro 2 and you can have a maximum of seven home screens, which is quite enough for having a lot of widgets. We usually have these in different sizes based on how we prefer to use them, and usually the weather, connectivity control widgets are the ones which use at the maximum. There are a lot of reasons why we might be changing the launchers and the look of the interface of the phone, and that is when the entire data of the widgets and shortcuts on the home screen is gone.

The LG G Pro 2 comes with the direct solution for this – backing up the home screen content. How good is that? for someone who does frequent changes, it’s a perfect solution to retain the same stuff on the home screen even after changing the look whenever needed.

To backup the home screen on your G Pro 2, you need to go to Settings > Display > Home screen > Data and here, open the option “Home backup & restore” so that it takes you to the options where you can backup the home screen data, including the app/widget layouts and themes.
