    When I expand the apps window after pressing the 'Home' button, there are 4 icons displayed at the top of the page under the 'search' icon. The 4 apps are separated from the other installed apps with a horizontal line above and below them. These 4 apps are also found on the full page alphabetically. I never use 3 of these apps and want to replace then with apps I do use. But I can't seem to find what this section of the apps page is called or how to change them. When I press and hold, the icon is duplicated on the home page and I have to delete it from there.

    Welcome to the forums. Which phone do you have and which version of Android is it running?

    Depending on your stock launcher this could be disabled in Google app - settings - app suggestions.

    As far as I know the stock launcher included in that model doesn't include an option to remove the app suggestions on the app drawer. Your best option could be using a custom launcher, like Nova.

    I moved your thread to the G5 & G5 Plus forum where it'll be easier getting feedback from other owners.

    I use Nova Launcher which shows me my most recent used/ frequently used apps above the all apps in the app drawer.
    In the stock launcher it is supposed to show you the last few apps you have used, from my experience.

    Yeah, the Moto Launcher shows a mix of recent/most used apps with some random Google app. It can't be personalized or removed. I use Nova launcher as well and keep this 'app suggestions' row always disabled.

    Yes, it can be turned off in Nova but not so in the stock launcher.

    Thanks everyone who chimed in. I'll give Nova Launcher a try.
