I hide some of my apps from the main app menu and now when i search for them to use them it shows the app but when I press it, the toast message says "menu not currently available". This is since the update yesterday. Anyone else experiencing this? And is there a quick fix? Now I have to unhide to use them which is annoying...

Please see response to user above. Basically the only option in that section that i don't have on now is to show downloads.

I'm having the same issue but I have all finder options selected. None of the apps I search for show up, and instead I get that same error message of "menu not currently available".

It's weird. Sometimes that still happens but only when i use the recent search options. If i search it over again in the search bar at the top it usually works. Maybe switch them all off then turn on one at a time?

Actually I think I'm having a similar, but not quite the same problem. This is happening to me when I search for them them in settings.

Oh ok. I just long press on the app and press the "i" to get to the app settings. I'm not sure what changes you'd need for that.

I still get it sometimes too but only when I'm selecting one of the recent search options. If i search it again it comes up. Not sure what would help otherwise.

This is the 3rd post i've seen on this issue with 0 response from Samsung, what a joke the so-called support is. I'll be switching to iPhone next year I've had it up to the neck with this laggy bs.
