When I download apps why do they not show up on the homescreen. I only have a home screen active with no apps screen. Anyone know how to make the apps show up??

Your 'Add new apps to Home screen' option in your 'Home screen' settings of your 'Settings' is probably disabled. To change this:
'Settings'→'Home screen'→'Add new apps to Home screen'
Enable if you want future apps to be automatically added to your Home screen(s)

If you'd like to add existing apps there's 2 ways:
'Apps'→tap & drag am app icon up to the top of the 'Apps: screen (don't let it go)→place it either on the currently home screen OR if you have multiple home screens, you can tap & hold & drag it to either the left or right edges (don't let go) until you get to which screen you'd like it on & where on it you'd like it to be, then release

'Apps'→tap & hold an app→in the pop-up window with an app's name (along with its 'App info', 'Select', & 'Add to Home' icons), you can tap 'Add to Home' for it to automatically be added somewhere on your home screen(s). Afterwards, you can tap & hold & drag it to place it on your home screen where you'd like it to be (don't let go). If you have multiple home screens, then you can tap & hold & drag it to either the left or right edges (don't let go) to pick which home screen you'd like it to be on & where you'd like it positioned & release
Only let go if the app icon is where you'd like for it to be.
