    Ello again.

    I'd like to see the app icons on (only) the apps screens in alphabetical order but I can't find a way to do this without downloading an app.

    Is there not a built in option to sort alphabetically?

    Thanks as always.

    Sorry if this has been asked hundreds of times before. :/

    I mean all the icons you see when you press the apps button on the home screen. I have 2 pages/screens of apps on my Galaxy S8 and there seems to be no order to them whatsoever.

    That's where all the apps on a device reside. Home screens would normally have a subset of those apps, ones that are place there manually or when downloaded if that option is set.

    Yes sorry that's actually what I was meaning.... the apps drawer. All the icons of all the apps installed on the phone which appear after you press the apps button.

    And sorry again because I've found the 3 little dots at the right hand side of the search bar... in there is 'sort and then two options. One of which is alphabetical. D'oh I can't believe I missed those dots! Sorry to have wasted your time.
