    App Open Buttons Are Missing

    My tablet is a Kindle Fire HDX, 8.9" with 32 GB.

    I don't know the correct name: I am referring to the app buttons that appear on the home screen. Tapping on one of them causes that app to open. I will call them shortcuts in this post.

    My problem is that I have some apps which have no shortcut shown on the home screen. I need to know either (1) how to create a shortcut to that app, or (2) how to open an app that lacks a shortcut.

    There are currently two apps having no shortcut on the home screen. These are Aurora, a web browser, and eBook Reader for reading epub books. Both apps are third-party apps not ontained from the Kindle app store. In the case of Aurora, when Silk is opened via shortcut a choice of Aurora or Silk is initially presented so that is possible to open Aurora in this way. For eBook Reader I don't know how to open it other than to install the app from it's apk file each time I want to open it. (The epub book doesn't appear in the Kindle's book section, hence the need to use a reader supplied by eBooks.com to read it.)

    How may I open these apps which lack shortcuts?

    Look under "Apps" at the top of the home screen
