    So I was clearing some space on my home screen by deleting some of the shortcuts there and I figured if I ever want those back I can always drag them from the app drawer. Turns out one of the things I deleted is the "Google folder" that expands to a small window with Gmail, Drive, Hangouts, etc. I actually found this quite handy and wanted to restore it to the launcher bar at the bottom but only then I noticed there's no such app in the app drawer that I can drag back.

    Do any of you know how to restore that folder short of resetting the phone? And yes, I'm aware I can run all of the apps that were in that folder by going to them individually, but it's actually the folder, specifically, that I want back. The fact that it was one icon that expanded to reveal all the Google apps.

    If It helps, I'm running Lollipop on a Nexus 5.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    You can make folders by dragging app icons on top of each other.

    I'm a bit new to Android as you can see. :P (Just defected from my trusty Blackberry Bold 9900) Eventually, I figured out that's all that icon was. Just all the Google apps dragged together to make a folder. Thanks for the help anyway!
