How do you find hidden apps on FireStick?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

Finding hidden apps on a FireStick device is a relatively simple process. The FireStick interface allows you to hide apps that you don’t frequently use, making the home screen less cluttered. However, if you want to unhide an app and make it visible again, you can easily do so by following these steps:

1. On your FireStick home screen, navigate to the top menu and select the “Settings” option.
2. Within the settings menu, scroll right and select the “Applications” tab.
3. From the Applications menu, scroll down and choose the “Appstore” option.
4. In the Appstore menu, select the “Installed on this TV” section.
5. Here, you will see a list of all the apps installed on your FireStick device.
6. Scroll through the list and locate the app that you want to unhide.
7. Once you’ve found the app, press the menu button on your FireStick remote (the button with three horizontal lines).
8. A menu will appear on the right side of the screen. Select the “Show on Your Apps” option from this menu.
9. The app will now be unhidden and will appear on your FireStick home screen.

It’s worth noting that this process only applies to apps that have been hidden using the FireStick interface. If you have hidden an app using a third-party launcher or a different method, you may need to consult the specific instructions for that launcher or method to unhide the app.

In my personal experience, I have found this method to be quite effective in locating and un-hiding hidden apps on FireStick. It has helped me declutter my home screen and easily access the apps that I use frequently.
