If one or some of your HTC One apps shortcuts have gone missing, one reason for this is accidental deletion. The other is that you may have disabled them by accident or that a bug caused them to be disabled.
To reactivate the apps, just follow these steps:
1. Go to Settings.
2. Proceed to the Apps menu.
3. Swipe your finger all the way to the “All” section.
4. Find the apps with the missing shortcuts from there and tap the “Enable” switch. This should bring out your missing shortcuts.
If that does not work, a good restart should fix it. But when the problem persists, try to see if there is an app that is causing the glitches and disable or uninstall it. A good old factory reset is your last resort if all else fails.
Transferring Files to the HTC One from Another Smartphone
One cool feature of the HTC One is that it lets owners transfer their data from their old phones easily. This feature lets them do away with the tedious manual entry of contacts and various saved files which is a common problem of people upgrading their units.
To easily transfer apps from other devices to your HTC One, just follow the steps below:
1. Access Settings.
2. Go to the Transfer Content section.
3. Select the type of your old device from the given list.
4. Then, choose your method of transfer whether you will be doing it via Bluetooth or from a backup tool.
The good thing about this feature of the HTC One is that it is not restricted on Android devices. You can also transfer contents from your old iPhone, BlackBerry or Windows Phone.
HTC One Power Conservation
If you HTC One is idle most of the time or you are having problem with its fast power consumption, aside from closing unwanted apps, you might want to put it in Sleep Mode when not in use. This will switch off your 3G connectivity which will save up a significant amount of energy from your battery.
To do this, perform the following:
1. Go to Settings.
2. Select Power.
3. Tap Sleep Mode.
