    How do you get an ico on "desktop"

    I have a few apps that the ico isn't on screen, but I would like it there.

    Thanks

    Swipe up from the bottom row of the homescreen to bring up your App Drawer.

    See if this video helps:

    Are you definitely using a Samsung phone? Because that is how stock Samsung UI works.

    Something I am sure I used to be able to do?

    Show us a screenshot of your homescreen.

    BTW, it's "icon", not "ico."

    I don't know where that setting is, to see if it's off or on

    What's the OneUI version you are running?

    I get this.

    Which is not near all my icons .. there was one I am trying to get, is not there.

    And wanted to clean some but now I see, I can no longer do that. I can uninstall but can't Remove from Homescreen

    I don't recognize that screen -- @mustang7757 or @Laura Knotek, does that seem familiar on a Samsung phone?

    In case this might be a 3rd party app that's taken over the swipe up gesture, see if it still happens in Safe Mode: https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...ung-galaxy-s10

    That screen is when you go into app drawer on stock Samsung launcher and tap search bar , it acts as a search finder

    Oh, I see that now. But why would it be activating automatically just with a swipe up on the homescreen?

    I was running Nova but switched back to OneUI and don't see anything like that.

    I do have one other suggestion to @towngirl. Try changing Home Screen Layout to "Home and Apps Screen" and see if you're able to then long press an icon and drag and drop it to your home screen.
