Open the app drawer > long press the app icon > once it vibrates > drag it to the top of the screen > then move it around anywhere on the homescreen.

Re: Applications icon removed, how to restore it

Hi @Grade, welcome to our community!

If you tap and hold on an empty area on the home screen > tap "Settings" in the bottom right corner > disable the function called "Enable swipe-up" and you should have the icon for accessing all the applications on your home screen again.

What the actual feature does it that it disables the button and you will have to swipe up on your home screen to access your applications, but I understand having the icon can be more convenient! Slightly smiling Face

I hope that helps!
