    What is this "launcher" I keep hearing about and seeing people discuss? I have a Galaxy S8+. Is that for apps or for internet? I know it's probably a dumb question but hey I'm old..lol

    The launcher is what gives you the homescreen, it's the GUI (Graphical User Interface).

    The only dumb questions are the ones not asked.

    The Launcher is essentially your "desktop" on the device.

    Check out these Android Central articles:

    Trust me, there are dumb questions. I remember vividly years ago when a customer called the store I worked at. She first asked when we closed, and then proceeded to ask if she could come shop after that.

    But no, this isn't a dumb question. As others said, it's essentially the app that runs your home screen and app drawer. If you want to change it up, launchers are what you would search for in Google Play.
