Edit the folder from within the app drawer as if you were editing an app. (Long press the folder and drag it to the "Edit" option at the top). From there you can check/uncheck which tab(s) you wish for it to appear in.

By menu, I'm assuming you are referring to the app drawer. I don't know if the stock Samsung launcher gives you the ability to hide apps, but several 3rd party launchers offer that functionality. Apex and Nova both give you the ability to hide and create custom app groups in the drawer. There are free versions of both in the market with each offering a paid ...

This has never been a feature of the stock launcher. Perhaps you were using a phone on Jellybean where the manufacturer had replaced the stock launcher with their own launcher, which had this feature. Since Android supports third-party launchers, just install a launcher (home screen) app which supports this feature. There are many to choose from.

No. The app drawer is part of the same app as the home screen itself: the launcher app. You can only replace both of them at once. Some launchers don't even have a separate app drawer: the list of apps is a seamless part of the home screen itself.

Have you restarted your device since removing the app? If you've simply deleted the .apk using Root Explorer then then it won't have performed the 'cleanup' that normally happens when uninstalling an application. Restarting your device should cause the app drawer to re-detect the installed apps and the icon should disappear. This answer (relevant part ...

This is very much possible, but you will require a custom launcher. For the sake of this, we'll use Nova Launcher. Install Nova Launcher and set it as the default when going back to your Home screen. Go to the "App & Widget Drawers" screen in Nova settings and scroll down to find the options shown in image. Make sure the switch for "Card background" is ...

Once you have created a folder in the Apps (i.e. I created a "Temp") and then remove it: 1. Go to the App Drawer, Apps, and find the panel holding the folder. 2. Menu > Edit 3. Press and hold the folder until "Remove" appears. 4. Drag to Trash Can (Remove). 5. Save Gone.

I can't say for sure, but there's probably a zero-width non-breaking space, or some other invisible or unprintable character, at the start of the label, causing it to sort ahead of normal characters.

I have an S4 (Build number I9505XXUBMGA) using the Nova launcher. However, I've changed to the stock launcher, and testing your scenario. My apps are sorted alpabetically (View type > Alphabetical grid). So, I created 4 different folders that would be strategically placed in different pages. In edit mode, I dragged 1 app to the every edge of the screen, ...

Well, As @ Izzy said, it is the app drawer. That's the place where all your installed app icons shown. So, about your problem, there are two ways you can solve it. You can either go to a third party app like Izzy said or customize your stock app drawer (which comes originally with your phone. GO Launcher EX, AppDrawer (MIUI App Drawer) and Color App Drawer ...

Ultra clean, sharp APP DRAWER with FREE REPLACEABLE backgrounds To change App Drawer background: Press Menu > Pref > Visual settings > Backgrounds > App Drawer Background > GO Theme background

It depends on the launcher you are using. The stock Samsung Galaxy S4 launcher (TouchWiz) supports it. If the stock launcher doesn't have it, you can use Nova Launcher. It allows you to hide apps so you don't see them on the app drawer. UPDATE #1: According to Izzy's comments below, the following launchers also have a similar feature: Apex Launcher Go ...

The creation of folders depends on the launcher. If you can't simply drop one icon on top of another (a folder would be created with two icons inside), try changing launcher. Go launcher gives you the option of adding folders on the app drawer, so give it a go. The downside is that go launcher on the last years has been supported by ads. Give it a go and ...

The app drawer is a part of the launcher app, so you can replace it simply by switching to a different launcher. Just install a new launcher of your choice that works the way you like.

For Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, follow the steps below: Go to App Drawer -> Click Edit -> Click Minus ("-") sign on the folder you wish to remove -> Click Delete on the warning displayed and you are done. The apps will not be uninstalled, only the folder will be removed. The apps would show normally in the App Drawer afterwards.

In order to uninstall apps on touch-wiz, go to the apps folder then tap the left soft button. Now tap uninstall and touch the minus button for the app you want to remove. Finally, tap yes when it says "(App you chose) will be uninstalled". Here is a video showing how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYL6nYapr7I Also, while I realize this might ...

Android launcher(s) is a dedicated app that serves as an UI to the underlying OS. There are tons of launchers available with features catering to the tastes of needs of users. If one needs features to be added to the existing (OEM or third party), they cannot be provided by yet another app because the launcher is so closely tied with the Android OS. Either ...

You can use Date in Status Bar. It will display the day of the week in short format above the date. However, the month and year are not shown (I have not seen them when testing). When you expand the status bar, the day of the week, date, month and year are all shown. Here are how the date is displayed: a. When the status bar is not expanded b. When the ...

You can simply dial *#*#4636#*#* in your native dialer. You will receive a list of options : Phone information Battery information Usage statistics Wi-Fi information Third option is what you might want to choose. Sort the results by Launch count, and you will receive the list of apps in descending order of usage time.

You're comparing the older Dev Preview 1 to the newer Dev Preview app drawer. From an article on AndroidPit, App drawer has been fixed While we commend Google on trying a new, vertical-scrolling app drawer, the alphabetical dividers on the left and negative space at the end of some sections was a bad idea. The new Android M removes these and is ...

You could easily hide by using custom launchers like Apex or Nova. But if this is not an option, you could try apps available on Google Play like [ CCSWE App Manager (ROOT) ] or [ Hide App-Hide Application Icon ] which needs root access. *I want you to read the user feedbacks on Google Play before consider using the app because some said the icon gone ...

You would need to install a custom Launcher. A launcher is the application that you use to launch other applications. It is both the home screen (view with wallpaper) and launcher draw ("launchpad"). With Android you can install different launchers via the Play Store to suit your own needs. For example AppDrawer (MIUI App Drawer) might be what you're ...

Use a custom launcher like ADW to freely arrange icons and add/remove them. If you want to uninstall apps that your firmware will not let you, use adb.

I have my S4 in a lifeproof case so it is almost impossible ( or at least a real pain in the butt ) to slide all the way to the edge due to the case overlap :) nother option is to go to the apps drawer ( the little grid ).. press the menu button (left of the Home) and choose edit, then click on the folder you want to put apps into ( or create one first, ...

You can use a different launcher, like ADW launcher. Free, and has that function. On the downside, it consumes a bit more of RAM.

Android has many apps that run either in background (such as Accuweather daemon) or only appear as widgets (for example TypoClock). Since these two apps don't need the user to open them from the launcher, they don't add an icon to it. The same happens with Live Wallpapers. If you use a root explorer or another root app that will let you see all the ...
