    Hi everyone,
    This might seem like a silly question, but how do you view the apps that are installed but don't have icons on the screens? If I go into the Applications Manager under "All", I can see that my phone has some apps/functions like Samsung Text to Speech, for example, but can't find an icon for it. So I can't view the settings or anything for the apps. Is that just how it is for some apps?

    Click on application launcher on the task bar.. It has a few dots on the icon... I would post mine but it has a custom icon and won't look like yours

    I think some of the apps that you are referring to aren't necessarily apps per-say but they are plug-ins or system services that other apps rely on. You mentioned the Samsung text-to-speech engine. There are settings for that in Settings>Personal tab>Accessibility>Vision>Text-to-speech options. Sorry if your menu isn't exactly the same, I'm looking at my s6 edge but it should be the same.​

    Yes, that is what I mean. Thanks - I wouldn't have found that! Thanks so much.

    Thanks for responding I knew about that on the task bar. It's when I couldn't see icons for what I thought were apps that I got confused.
