    Hey, on my pixel 2 XL's home screen used to be a little app button with 4 little dots on it. This would bring up another screen with all my apps like a shortcut. Can anyone tell me how I can re-add this shortcut or button? I'm not sure what its called exactly and can't find a setting for it..



    Photo for example, that little grey icon with 6 dots (Had 4 on my phone).

    You're either going to need a different launcher, like Nova Launcher or Action Launcher, to get that button or a widget so that you can map that open-app-drawer action onto a version of that button. The new launcher route is easier, and you'll be able to switch between Pixel launcher and another launcher in Settings > Apps.

    I don't recall my Pixel 2 XL ever having that shortcut, was it an option you had previously enabled that is now gone?

    It's got to be from a third party launcher. That's straight up old school there. I suppose there could be a widget or app you can get that does it. But there's no search bar so it's not the pixel launcher.
