After performing an update, the all-apps icon is gone. I need that to launch the Play Store since there was no palmtop icon for that. How do I restore the icon for all apps?

Using Droid Maxx 2 with Android 7.1.1

  • Can't you do that from settings > apps > app details and launch from Play store?

  • Also from settings > apps > home, see if launcher is disabled or try resetting it

The update installed a caret icon at bottom center which acts as the original all-apps icon did. The caret is small enough that I didn't see it at first. Issue resolved.

  • Rahul Gopi, the home screen icons persisted after the update. You were misinformed.
