Can I add a shortcut to Settings>Apps on my home screen?

I frequently want to go to Settings>Apps.

Is there a way to set up a shortcut on my home screen to take me directly there?

If I touch and hold the "apps" button, I don't get the pop-up where I could add it to home.
Can't drag it anywhere either -- is there another way to add shorcuts?

Hey there! Have you tried swiping up from the bottom of the screen to reach the application list?

Yes, but the "Apps" function in Settings is not available there.

Another way is to pull down your notification bar and look towards the top right corner, there should be a Settings icon, Just give it a tap and you're there!! Smiley Happy

What I'm trying to do is to get the the "Apps" function in Settings with one touch from home.

There are a few different ways to get there with mulitple touches...

Oh I'm so sorry, I see exactly what you are trying to do, There are multiple taps to get to the apps and can be frustrating. Unfortunately I don't think there is a way to fix that, I will do some research and if I find anything I will definitely come back to you on it!! I'm really sorry.

There are third party apps that can for this for you. Search Google play to find one that may work for you.

Yes, there appear to be various third-party "launchers" that would do it.

Unfortunately, many third-party apps come with some undesired baggage.

I'll try living without it and see how frustrated I become...
