    This is the point. On the international version of the S6, there is no menu, no A-Z button.

    How do you put your apps in alphabetical order in Lollipop?-screenshot_2015-06-02-07-29-42.jpg

    Personally, I have used Quad Drawer (sorry, i don't have enough posts to include a link) for some time - it has some great features.

    yes, i had that as well on my vzw s4 and it really worked well for me. i don't know why they got rid of it. i am a text person. not a picture person. I don't have the a to z button. i go to menu on lower left and get to view as. there i can make abc pics or customize.

    Yes... apps are alphabetical in the App Drawer. BUT I rarely go there. All of my apps are in folders on my SINGLE home screen... Touchwiz is set to 5X5 Grid so I can have 25 folders to put apps in. I find this much faster than flipping through multiple home screens or multiple pages in the App Drawer.

    I'm having this exact same problem on my Galaxy Tab A that I just purchased today. No A-Z, no 3 dots, no menu button anymore. It's driving me crazy, almost plan on returning it!

    A-Z button is only visible on 5.1.1 when it was introduced. Did not exist in 5.0.2

    On 5.0.2 (cyanogen) Tap and hold down on background. Screen comes up with Wallpapers, Widgets, and Settings at the bottom. There are 3 dots above the Widgets icon (poor design). Tap the three dots and it will take you to drawer settings.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 with Lollipop -- it was an extended warrantee replacement, so it's still new, and I have to find out things I'd forgotten two years ago. But, to get the icons alphabetical, it's home screen/menu key/view as/alphabetical.

    On my phone it only shows EDIT - A-Z is missing!
    Same here on my GS6 from Rogers running 5.0.2. What a bummer. I just called their tech support and asked about when 5.1.1 would be released and was told that they found some issues during testing and have pulled the update for the time being. Typical lousy Rogers customer service. 5.1.1 has been out long enough for them to have tested and resolved any potential issues by now.

    I dont know if this answers your question. But I figured out how to change from the Alphabetical order to the icons:
    On homescreen, hit settings button.
    Select the triangle key in the top middle (above Widgets icon)
    Go to "Drawer Settings" and below this switch from "Layout" from "Vertical" --> "Page"

    You get icons back but with a white background instead of the alphabetical icons.

    I was fortunate, updated to 5.1.1 last night on my S6 and it went fine, I'm so excited to have the A-Z sorting option back!!!

    On my VZW a note 3 vn. 5.0 the Alphabetical option is in the menu in the app drawer. Open the app drawer, hit the menu button, hit "view as."

    I know it's a bit of an old thread but it annoyed me for ages having not the A-Z option. If you don't want your apps in portrait but like to keep them in horizontal, there's a secret menu that's hidden in the bottom left hand corner of the screen (in the apps menu) its just above the app drawer. you can do a short diagonal upwards swipe(only with slight but fast movement) and this opens the menu.
    I only find this out by accident ha ha
