[Discussion] Rearranged app icons will not stay where they're put

When I drag an apps icon from one page to another and then either reboot or restart the phone, I find that the icon does not stay where it has been put. It is back on the page it was originally.
I have tried moving a number of app icons and for some reason the phone is not remembering where I drag them to.
Any ideas about this? It appears to have occurred in the past week or so.

Hi Dave!
It's really strange for that to happen. I assume you're using MiUI for your RedMi?

I found this article, it's worth giving a try.

Basically it says there is a way to lock the homescreen apps from being misplaced.

Let us know how it goes with your phone.

Hi Chinito, I tried locking the home screen layout as in the article and it has not fixed the problem. Although that method isn't actually fixing the problem I thought it may have stopped the icons moving back after reboot... but unfortunately not.
Yes, I'm using MIUI9

I have the same problem but another thing is that it rearranges icons without me doing anything
