    So, I'm noticing that lately, apps I download from the Play store are not populating in my app drawer as they should. I've checked hidden apps, the and Game Launcher, and the Secure folder and have disabled the latter 2 in attempts to troubleshoot. The weird thing is I can type the name of the apps into the app drawer search and it finds them. I'm using the American Red Cross Blood Donor app as en example in my attachments, but it's not the only app affected.
    Anyone else experiencing anything similar? Only other variable is I'm using Good Lock to force vertical scrolling in the app drawer and home screen looping.

    I had the same problem and it was driving me crazy. From what I remember, what I did was switch from vertical scrolling to horizontal scrolling in Good Lock. The app would then appear. Then I would switch back to vertical scrolling.

    Same thing is happening to me... also using Good Lock to force vertical scrolling. Missing apps - not shown in the vertical scrolling, only with horizontal scrolling. Maybe need to delete GoodLock?

    Do the apps appear after you switch back to vertical scrolling? Once you go to horizontal scrolling and have all the app icons then switch back to vertical scrolling they should be there. That's what worked for me.

    This will enable the app to appear on the home screens but doesn't add them to the app drawer.

    I know, that's why i wrote, at least it's visible and can be used until the issue is found....or,let's also try switching from "Home screen only" to "Home and apps screens" or vice versa in the "Home screen layout" settings .... maybe the issue whit this is corrected...Missing apps in the app drawer-screenshot_20220520-233559_one-ui-home.jpg

    That did it, thanks!
    Good Lock - - Home Up - - Home Screen - - toggle Apps List off, check to see if the previously missing apps are gone. If so, toggle it back on and the apps should still be there.
