Why was the My Files app removed from the cluster of pre-installed Samsung apps with the recent update? Now you have to search in settings to locate and open it. Yet another useful feature taken away.

OP isn't in the beta. They've got a note.

Off topic, but is that phone worth it? I've always wanted a note I just never really found time to research or test it out. I feel like with my ADHD I would lose the pen a lot, as I do the same with my Tab S7's S-Pen.

I've had my Snapdragon, unlocked Note 20 Ultra for 2 yrs now and it has proven to be one of the best devices I've owned to date. It does so many things, and does them well. I think even after 2 yrs since it launched it gives newer devices a run for their money.

Still have the my files app on my s21 Ultra on the latest update. Not sure why they've made it an inconvenience for the note.

@Belaythatorder it sounds like it may have gotten hidden somehow. Try this:

  1. Open settings
  2. Click on Home screen
  3. Click on Hide apps
  4. The hidden files are listed near the top of the page. Click the minus (-) sign near the icon to unhide it.

That did the trick. Thanks LongHiker.
