LG K30 & K40 App Drawer / apps icon / menu tree

On the iPhone, there is no app drawer. All the apps are on the home screen itself. Android also tried this trick and removed the all apps icon on most of the Android Smartphones.

It’s fine if you’re a new Android user however If you were used to the menu button then you must be looking for it on your LG K30/K40.

In this post, we are going to bring back the old App Drawer in a few steps. Follow the below video and screenshots  –
