As a rule, I use Homescreen only on my device. While piddling around today, I checked in on Homescreen and Apps screen. In my case, not all of my apps are appearing in the apps drawer. However, if I search for them, there they appear in the search field. Just me? Or has anybody else seen this?

Can you give an example of apps that only show up in the search field?

Are there any app folders in the App Drawer?

I don't do folders in the app drawer. It looks like the last 6 apps I've added to my phone do not appear in the apps drawer when using the apps screen. When on Homescreen only, all apps are present. Odd.

Are you using Secure Folder? Make sure you didn't place any apps there.
I do not use Secure Folder. This entire thing is strange, yes. All apps appear when in Home Screen only. Some apps do not appear in the apps drawer, though I can pull them up via the search box in the apps screen...makes zero sense. Not even sure how you'd make that happen 🤷‍♂️. I wouldn't even know this had happened had I not just been messing around with my phone.

I was originally going to ask if any apps were set to be hidden, but when I looked at my Galaxy A32 5G, I saw that the feature is no longer present (since I think it was replaced by Secure Folder). :confused:

before I did this, I wiped my cache partition...didn't work. turning off Navstar had no effect. turning off Home Up fixed it. after toggling that back on, the missing apps remained. problem solved (now we'll see what happens to the next app download )

mucho appreciado
Your welcome!
Check all settings in home up module
