App menu button disappeared on xz1 compact

The app menu button disappeared and i can't find it anywhere on the phone. It's not on other screens. I started up in safe mode, as suggested in another topic but no result.

Any other solutions please?

@Bubbafet

Long-press on any empty space within your home screen -> Settings -> Disable "Hide apps icon"

 

EDIT: if you recently updated your Xperia Home app, this setting is renamed to "Enable swipe up"

Re: Lost app drawer

Hi @6379, welcome to our forum!

If you press and hold on an empty area of your home screen and then tap "Settings" in the bottom right corner > scroll down and find "Enable swipe-up", if this is activated, disable it and you'll have to the Apps icon back on your home screen.

This setting removes the icon and you can instead open up the app drawer by swiping up from the home button.

Let me know if that helps!
