When I download a game app it doesn't appear on the app screen. Have to go to settings and apps and launch from there.  WHY?

Have a Galaxy A13

@Kat438 Open Game Launcher. Is the game there?

It could be that you have Game Launcher configured so games only show up in Game Launcher. To change that:

  1. Open Game launcher
  2. Click More in lower right
  3. Click on Settings
  4. Find the option "Show game apps" and change it to your desired value. Either "In Game Launcher only" or "In Game Launcher and the Home and Apps screens".

Swipe up, scroll to the right until you see the app you want, then long press it, and add it to the home screen.
