How do I put an app back on my home screen?

Answered by Antonio Sutton

To put an app back on your home screen, you can follow these steps:

1. Long-press on the app’s icon: Find the app you want to put back on your home screen. Long-press on its icon until a menu pops up. Long-pressing typically involves pressing and holding your finger on the icon for a few seconds.

2. Context menu: Once the menu appears, you will see various options related to the app. Look for the option that says “Add to Home Screen” or something similar. It might be represented by a plus symbol or an option that mentions adding the app to your home screen.

3. Tap “Add to Home Screen”: Tap on the “Add to Home Screen” button from the context menu. This action will initiate the process of moving the app and placing it on your home screen automatically.

4. Automatic placement: The app will be moved and placed on your home screen without any further input required from you. The exact placement may vary depending on your device and home screen layout, but it will generally be added to the next available spot on your home screen.

It’s worth noting that the specific steps may vary slightly depending on the device and the version of the operating system you are using. However, the general process should be similar across most Android and iOS devices.

I remember a time when I accidentally removed an app from my home screen and had to put it back. It was a game that I frequently played, and it was frustrating to not have easy access to it. I followed the steps mentioned above and was able to quickly add the app back to my home screen. It was such a relief to have it back in its familiar place, ready for me to launch and enjoy whenever I wanted.

In summary, to put an app back on your home screen, long-press on the app’s icon until a menu appears, select the “Add to Home Screen” option from the context menu, and the app will be automatically placed on your home screen.
