-“Choose”: This tab will take you to choose the apps you want to redesign. You will see that a list of all the applications that you have installed is displayed on your screen. Scroll down and select those whose icons you want to modify.

-Icon of the three dots: When you have selected all the apps you want to redesign, click on the icon with the three dots, in the upper right corner. By doing so, you will be able to give a new name to the action you are developing, so that it is saved in the “Shortcuts” app, and change the icon image of the selected apps.
