Occasionaly, I have app icons disappearing and no idea how to retrieve them.

I tried pressing an empty area on the home screen but I can't see an option to recover an app icon.

I use Android 9 on a "chinese brand" (Cubot)

Any hint?

  • Does there's an app drawer(which helps to view all installed apps) in the OS? – munsoft004 Jul 11 '20 at 16:46
  • I can see this app in settings / "Apps & Notifications" but I don't see any way there to recover an icon... – Eric Mamet Jul 11 '20 at 19:54
  • Sometimes if an app is updated the "start page" changes which also means that the app icon is removed and newly added. Therefore icons on the app launcher desktop may disappear at an app update. – Robert Jul 12 '20 at 10:19
  • In this case, should I fix it by uninstall/install? Or is there a smarter way? – Eric Mamet Jul 13 '20 at 12:05
