The other day I was browsing around my S9 tablet and found a setting where I could hide apps from the main screen of the tablet. So, thinking it would be nice to not have the game apps that are in my Games group also show by themselves, I hid them. Problem is, not only did they get hidden, because the individual apps are hidden, so is the group they are in! Apparently since everything in the group is hidden, it figures the group isn't needed either. However (this is good), if I do a search for games, ALL of the hidden games show up - so at least I know they are still here!

Does anyone know how to get them back on the main screen??

Open your settings and then select the home screen menu and then select the hide apps from the home screen . You should see all of the applications with a red line tap on that, and the application will automatically show up on your home screen 1717383453552.jpg

Thank you! Now I know how I hid them. I was able to get them back, but they still didn't show up on the normal screen that comes up on my tablet. It took me a bit to actually find the home screen. Apparently it was never set up to be the 'Home' screen for my machine. I have no idea what screen I thought I was using.

If you want the games to show up also on your home screen open the Game hub and select the 3 Dots in the right corner and select settings and change the setting show game apps 1717383471123.jpg1717383708694.jpg

Thanks, Gary. I used the other solution because I couldn't find the Home screen - apparently it wasn't set up - and also I still have no idea where to find the Game Hub. It sounds like it would be useful, but it doesn't seem to be anywhere I can find it.
