Create icons for apps on home page

I got a new phone and it went great, copying all the apps from the old one, but there are no icons for the apps on the home screen. How do I make icons for the ones I use frequently? The only way I can get to them now is by going to settings.

Hi @elizabethm.12ptrb,

Generally, swiping up from the bottom of a newer Android phone reveals the “app drawer” (list of all apps). From there, long press (press and hold) then drag the apps to which you wish to have more direct access to a home screen.

If the above is insufficiently helpful, please share the brand, model and (if applicable) generation of the phone in question?


Wow, thanks that was easy!
